Detailed information

A unique collaborative publication which documents the lyrics written by Nobel Prize winning author Kazuo Ishiguro for the platinum selling, Grammy nominated, Jazz singer Stacey Kent.

The Summer We crossed Europe in the Rain
collects the sixteen song lyrics written to date by Kazuo Ishiguro for the renowned American jazz singer, Stacey Kent, and which have been set to music by composer/bandleader Jim Tomlinson. As the Nobel Prize-winning author explains in his introduction, he has been steadfastly following his remit, that 'however sad, however bleak the song became, there had to remain an element of hope'. The resulting lyrics are infused with yearning and the bittersweet romance of travel.

This volume has been gorgeously illustrated by acclaimed Italian comics artist Bianca Bagnarelli, who captures perfectly the varying moods, as well as the 'stories', contained in these songs.
