The reserved Mr. Stevens spent the most of his life as a butler at Lord Darlington's country house. Serving his master was always everything for him, as it was for housekeeper Miss Kenton, who came to the house at the beginning of the 1930s. An intense emotional bond formed between Mr. Stevens and Miss Kenton during their long years at the house, but the strict hierarchy of relationships between servants made a closer relationship impossible. However, echoes of their tortuously decent romance resound in their lives long after their ways parted. Remains of the Day is a masterful study of relationships devastated by the British class system that also gives us a feeling for the times leading up to World War II, as illustrated through political meetings with Germans organized by the ambitious Lord Darlington at his house.

Kazuo Ishiguro (* 1954), born in Japan, has lived in Britain since the age of six. His third novel, Remains of the Day, is one of the most impressive psychological novels of the last quarter of the twentieth century, and in 1989 received the prestigious Booker Prize. In 2017 Ishiguro received the Nobel Prize in Literature.

The film of the same name was made in 1993 by director James Ivory, who cast Anthony Hopkins and Emma Thompson in the main roles. The film received eight Oscar nominations and four Golden Globe nominations.
