Nobel-winning author Kazuo Ishiguro on artificial intelligence and why he writes

The Remains of the Day and Never Let Me Go are the novels that made Kazuo Ishiguro a household name, still taught on the English syllabus.

His new novel, Klara and the Sun, is on the surface a sci-fi about artificial intelligence, but of course it is about much more, mostly love.
