After watching the movie of the 'Remains of the Day' of a Booker prize

winning novel by the same name, I was curious as to who the author was. The 

result of my inquiry turned out to be a Japanese name, Kazuo Ishiguro. you 

could imagine my amazement if you knew that I had never heard of the book or 

author and upon just seeing a movie that was rich with praise for the 

English scenery, mannerisms and basically English ways. I was half expecting 

a noble's name or at least a very very old English gentleman.

It seems fitting that my initial misrepresentation of the author, Kazuo Ishiguro, is justified in the sense that the novel seems to be making fun of the way that 'the Stevens, the narrator in Kazuo Ishiguro's Remains of the Day, takes pride in similar styles of interaction, and similarly links detachment, dignity, greatness and patriotism'
