THE BURIED GIANT by Kazuo IshiguroRead about another book on the list.
A book about cultural forgetfulness, about what history means, which is written as a parable. It takes you on a journey and I found it impossible to put down.
The Buried Giant is one of Alastair Bruce's top ten books about forgetting.
