|Nocturnes by Kazuo Ishiguro|
I have not yet read all the stories, but I did find a teaser for you:
'What are you talking about? You're not listening. I just told you. I want you to do me a favour.'
'I thought that was your way of saying...'
'No, you idiot, I'm the one who has to clear out. I've got to go to a meeting in Frankfurt, I'm flying out this afternoon. I'll be back in two days, Thursday at the latest. Meanwhile, you stay here. You bring things round, make everything okay again. Then I come back, say a cheerful hello, kiss my darling wife like the last two months haven't happened, and we pick up again.'
What do you guys think? It sounds a bit like a weird request to make, right?
