ALTHOUGH it claims to be set in this country in the late 1990s, the England of Ishiguro's novel is a skewed version of reality.

Narrated by 31-year-old Kathy H, the novel tells of her childhood at the mysterious Halisham School.

But behind this matter-of-fact tone is thought-provoking, creative and imaginative vision and an engaging novel.
