Personal Quote:

Idealistic people often become misanthropic when they are let down two or three times. Plato suggests it can be like that with the search for the meaning of the good. You shouldn't get disillusioned when you get knocked back. All you've discovered is that the search is difficult, and you still have a duty to keep on searching.

Trivia:

Grew up in Guildford, Surrey, where he attracted attention in the neighborhood by being the only Japanese child. In his teens he wanted to be a rock star - in fact, in 1973, Ishiguro worked for a time as a grousebeater for the Queen Mother at Balmoral Castle, in Aberdeen, Scotland - but in 1983 he became a full-time writer.
