A fascinating window into Kazuo Ishiguro’s talent as a lyricist, this stunning volume brings together the Nobel Prize-winning author’s sixteen song lyrics written for renowned American jazz singer Stacey Kent, along with luminous illustrations from Italian artist Bianca Bagnarelli.

Memorably introduced by Ishiguro himself, The Summer We crossed Europe in the Rain collects the sixteen song lyrics he wrote for world-renowned American singer, Stacey Kent, which were set to music by her partner Jim Tomlinson. An exquisite coming together of the literary and musical worlds, the lyrics are infused with a sense of yearning, melancholy, love, and the romance of travel and liminal spaces.

Further exploring the notion of collaboration and interpretation, the collection is illustrated by the acclaimed Italian artist, Bianca Bagnarelli whose work perfectly captures the atmosphere and sensibility of the songs.
