Quite a while before Julian Fellowes profited from that by creating "Gosford Park" und "Downton Abbey", Kazuo Ishiguro gifted us with "The Remains of the Day". Mostly the books consists of flashbacks in the mind of butler Stevens while he is on his way to find out whether the erstwhile housekeeper Miss Kenton is willing to return to the manor. It is fascinating how well the book works even though it is told complete from Stevens' point of view, who is a frustrating narrator. He acts on the maxim that a butler in his personality is less significant than a butler in his role, and that is something he also keeps up with the reader. That means that while Stevens presents to us what happens, his evaluations only cover manners, not emotional revelations. Still Ishiguro manages to allow the reader to look behind the facade, as he makes plain what is going on below Stevens' surface. As a reader there are times when you want to shake him and scream "do something", and I am sure Miss Kenton feels similarly. In spite of this frustrating component, "The Remains of the Day" is a book that also serves a good helping of humor and is quite a lovely book.
