Ishiguro, who was born in Nagasaki in 1954 but moved to England in 1960, writes the story of Masuji Ono, a bohemian artist and purveyor of the night life who became a propagandist for Japanese imperialism during the war. But the war is over. Japan lost, Onos wife and son have been killed, and many young people blame the imperialists for leading the country to disaster.

Whats left for Ono? Ishiguros treatment of this story earned a 1986 Whitbread Prize.
