The Buried Giant by Kazuo Ishiguro
The story of an elderly married couple traveling across a misty medieval landscape. As they work to clarify hazy memories of their son, a bigger picture of a forgotten war, and the devices used to repress memories of those lost, resurfaces. Suitably, Ishiguro uses the language of lore to tell Axel and Beatrice’s story, in a pleasant examination of the stories we tell ourselves to get by. Plus, there are dragons.
