Appreciating the English novelist's work, the Swedish Academy's statement read that Ishiguro in his "novels of great emotional force, has uncovered the abyss beneath our illusory sense of connection with the world."
The 'Never Let Me Go' author's writings are marked by a carefully restrained mode of expression, independent of whatever events are taking place, further read the statement.
Ishiguro, who was born in Japan, but moved to the United Kingdom when he was five years old, has written eight books as well as scripts for film and television.
