A Pale View of Hills


The highly acclaimed first novel by the author of The Remains of the Day and An Artist of the Floating World, A Pale View of Hills is the story of Etsuko, a Japanese woman now living alone in England, dwelling on the recent suicide of her eldest daughter. In a story where past and present confuse in a haunting and sometimes macabre way, she relived scenes of Japan's devastation in the wake of World War II, even as she recounts the weirdnesses and calamities of her own life.

'A delicate, ironic, elliptical novel, A Pale View of Hills means much more than it says... Its characters are remarkably convincing... but what one remembers is its balace, halfway between elegy and irony." - The New York Times Book Review

'An extraordinary fine first novel... its themes are deceptively large and uncommonly haunting [and] developed with remarkable insight and skill.' - Los Angeles Times
