Kazuo Ishighuro: Klara and the Sun
Klara is an AF (artificial friend) who has the ability to observe her surroundings and the capability to learn human feelings. Through Klara’s narration, we learn about our world through the robot’s insights. Ishighuro is a masterful novelist who gives a voice to a machine. This is a beautiful, breathtaking work of fiction on human connection and loneliness. I highly recommended it for an escapism.
