SummaryJoin us for a book group at the Fremont Branch. Everyone is welcome. This month’s title is "When We Were Orphans" by Kazuo Ishiguro.
Book DescriptionBorn in early-Twentieth-Century Shanghai, Banks was orphaned at the age of nine after the separate disappearances of his parents. Now, more than twenty years later, he is a celebrated figure in London society; yet the investigative expertise that has garnered him fame has done little to illuminate the circumstances of his parent's alleged kidnappings. Banks travels to the seething, labyrinthine city of his memory in hopes of solving the mystery of his own painful past, only to find that war is ravaging Shanghai beyond recognition-and that his own recollections are proving as difficult to trust as the people around him.
