Some survive, some resurface in other parts of the world, some are never seen again. Almost all the books of his that I have read o Literary Keyholes In The Remains of the DayKazuo Ishiguro painted an England ditsante seen by the butler of a large house, whose keyhole view of the world, circumscribed by the minutiae of place-setting and gong-ringing, is so narrow that the truly great events—the approach to World War—can be seen only in narrow glimpses.
