Author Kazuo Ishiguro is known for crossing genres. He won the Booker Prize for his 1989 novel “Remains of the Day,” about the unspoken love between an English butler and housekeeper. In 2005, he published “Never Let Me Go,” a novel set in a dystopian future where school kids were cloned. Ishiguro’s new book, “The Buried Giant,” his first in a decade, is a fantasy novel set in a medieval land of knights and dragons.
