The esteemed novelist reveals his intentions to explore the comic book genre for an upcoming project.
Ishiguro, who was recently crowned the year’s Nobel Literature Prize winner, and author of harrowing contemporary classics — The Remains of the Day, The Nocturnes, and When We Were Orphans are among the many that immediately come to mind — told Swedish reporters about his interest and fascination with Japanese Manga as a childhood pastime for its peculiar sense of storytelling and the U.S. superhero comics of the 1930s.
In fact, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the 63-year-old British novelist just may be turning toward the genre as inspiration for his next work.
While Ishiguro has not yet confirmed his excursion to the genre, he hinted that “all storytelling forms need to be explored.”
