노벨문학상 수상 이후 처음으로 발표하는
거장 가즈오 이시구로의 장편소설
전 세계가 손꼽아 기다려 온 기적처럼 놀랍고 아름다운 신작!


2017년 노벨 문학상을 수상하며 명실상부 현대 영문학을 대표하는 최고의 작가로 꼽힌 작가 가즈오 이시구로가 노벨상 수상 이후 최초로 장편소설을 발표했다. 전 세계 독자가 손꼽아 기다려 온 이번 작품 『클라라와 태양』은 인공지능 로봇과 한 소녀의 이야기를 담았으며, 출간 즉시 언론의 격찬과 독자들의 열광 속에 영국 베스트셀러 1위, 미국 [뉴욕 타임스] 베스트셀러 3위, 호주 1위, 캐나다 2위에 올랐다. 또한 소니 픽처스가 영화화 판권을 획득하여 곧 영화화 될 예정이다.

지금으로부터 멀지 않은 미래, AF(Artificial Friend)라 불리는 인공지능 로봇이 인간 아이들의 친구로 생산되어 팔리기 시작한다. 그중 유난히 인간을 열심히 관찰하고 그들의 감정과 소통을 익히는 데 관심이 많은 소녀 AF 클라라는 AF 매장 쇼윈도에서 자신을 데려갈 아이와의 운명적인 만남을 기다린다. 어느 날 거리를 관찰하고 있던 클라라에게 다가 온 조시라는 이름의 소녀. 조시는 클라라를 데려가겠다고 굳게 약속하고, 클라라는 그날이 찾아오기만을 기다린다.

가즈오 이시구로는 한국 독자에게 보내는 인사의 말을 통해 이 책이 그의 대표작 『남아 있는 나날』과 『나를 보내지 마』 사이에 다리를 놓는 작품이 될 것이라 밝힌 바 있고, 유수의 언론 매체들은 인공지능 로봇이라는 타자(他者)를 주인공으로 설정했다는 점에서 『나를 보내지 마』와 『파묻힌 거인』과 한데 묶어 3부작으로 부르기도 한다. 이 책의 출간을 맡은 영국 파버 출판사의 편집국장 앵거스 카질은 이 소설이 “다른 곳으로부터 ‘지금/이곳’에 간절하게 이야기를 건네는 인간의 마음에 관한 작품”이며 “이시구로가 늘 그랬듯이 가슴 떨리는 놀라운 이야기를 담고 있는 동시에 그의 전체 작품 세계와 여전히 맥을 함께하고 있는 소설”이라는 소감을 남겼다.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
A GOOD MORNING AMERICA Book Club Pick!

Klara and the Sun is a magnificent new novel from the Nobel laureate Kazuo Ishiguro--author of Never Let Me Go and the Booker Prize-winning The Remains of the Day.


Klara and the Sun, the first novel by Kazuo Ishiguro since he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature, tells the story of Klara, an Artificial Friend with outstanding observational qualities, who, from her place in the store, watches carefully the behavior of those who come in to browse, and of those who pass on the street outside. She remains hopeful that a customer will soon choose her.

Klara and the Sun is a thrilling book that offers a look at our changing world through the eyes of an unforgettable narrator, and one that explores the fundamental question: what does it mean to love?

In its award citation in 2017, the Nobel committee described Ishiguro's books as "novels of great emotional force" and said he has "uncovered the abyss beneath our illusory sense of connection with the world."

-the effect of the Sun’s special nourishment

a secret deal in the Barn : AF superstition? or a special favor?

 

-parting time

their real & everlasting love : truth at that time / stronger & into an adult --> with separate plans now

# Rick and Josie still show kindness to each other. And yet, they’re now preparing such different future. (287)

# But now we’re no longer kids, we have to wish each other the best and go our different ways. (288)

They might once again meet like the Coffee Cup Lady and Raincoat Man....

occupying the Utility Room(倉庫) : high small window : not a view

 

-Mr Capaldi’s demand

AFs like Klara offered education and enlightenment well for lonely kids, but people are scared and resentful toward AFs. People have backlash and prejudice against them. They want AFs to be sealed into black boxes forever. He asked her to resist and fight back. However, Mother interrupted and rejected it.

# Klara deserves better. She deserves her slow fade.... Leave our Klara be. (294)

 

-the Yard at Memorial Bridge 處理場

Klara said to Josie, Thank you for choosing me.

# But I like this spot. And I have my memories to go through and place in the right order. (302)

seeing Manager again : happiness : hearing Rosa’s news

the good service : having successful home : the remarkable AF --> complete !!

# I’d never have reached what they felt for Josie in their hearts... It was inside those who loved her... -> So Mr Capaldi’s wrong.

The Sun was very kind to me. (302) ---> Can I say like that on the last day?

*** light and shadow in life

리뷰제목

-Klara’s request (vs Mother’s one)

Jose’s losing strength again -> hoping the special help : making a special plea

She confessed underestimating her task so She failed to stop Pollution(= perform the service). --> too professional mind? perfectionist? Just programming?

She prayed to God for Josie’s getting better again. She was asking the Sun to make exceptions and exercise favoritism this time. She praised the Sun’s compassion, special nourishment and great kindness for their strong and lasting love. Klara has in mind only the Coffee Cup Lady and Raincoat Man & the Beggar Man and his dog. She never gave up hope.

 

-Mother’s harsh(childish) words

She said that Josie bet high, but Rick played it safe. What Josie’s won must be small and mean.

# Do you really feel like a winner? (276) 

Rick told her what Josie’s message(遺言) is about. She’s been doing the best for her daughter. Mother spoke nonsense because of fear of losing Josie again after Sal.

In the cloudy weather, Josie got new strength.

리뷰제목

-city visiting

Josie stayed in the Friend’s Apartment / Rick in the hotel

the old store moved --> Klara’s hometown gone ?

 

-Father

Paul = Mr Arthur -> Mrs Arthur = Chrissie

He calls Josie (wild) Animal.

substitution : losing a job --> He lives in the (unemployed) community and is satisfied with it. Mother seemed hard on him ?

# But I keep hanging on, as you put it, because on the day I stop (working), Josie’s world, my world, would collapse. (189)

 

-Father’s objection to Mother’s plan

performing roles --> also human fate ?

unique and irreplaceable --> not be copied and transferred / If so, why he was fired?

# When they(scientists) do what they do, say what they say, it feels like they’re taking from me what I hold most precious in this life. (222)

human hearts : poetic sense : each of us special and individual

# Wouldn’t you have to learn her heart? (215)

Klara can understand Mr Paul’s unease and the initial coldness toward her.

Father started hoping again after talking with Klara frankly.

***Isn’t he a facist or thinker? --> dreaming the equal, fair society

# There are many different ways to lead a decent and full life. (228)

# Lifted or not, genuine ability has to get noticed. Unless this world’s completed crazy now. (227)

# But when I won’t accept is that Rick can’t have a decent life. I refused to accept this world has become so cruel. Rick wan’t lifted, but he can still go far, do very well. (233)

# The monster(Pollution machine) won’t rise again.

*** The author pictures the patriarchy being naturally deconstructed, but the good father is hopefully left. 

 

-Mother’s request

Mother’s narrowed eyes : complex to read  

She called Klara Honey and also rocked gently during a long embrace.

Klara’s loyalty to Mother -> shocking too !

# We’re asking you to become her. (207)

# I’ll be able to love you. (210)

-> If you were the new Josie, you would be loved by Mother and Rick. Too tempting ?

the second Josie : not a copy but extra same : observe and learn entirely to inhabit the new Josie

 

-Mr Capaldi’s studio

He is called Henry.

He mentioned Mother as a boss.

Is he a typical scientist? Is it just paid work (not requiring ethical choices?)

# We shouldn’t fear their(AFs) intellectual powers. (197)

# You mustn’t let Paul sway you... You can’t weaken now. (203)

the Purple Door --> very horrible !!!

# The new Josie won’t be an imitation. She really will be Josie. A continuation of Josie. (205)

claiming no difference between the first Josie and the second

# You’re being asked to continue her for Chrissie. And for everyone who loves Josie. (207)

 

-Promise with the Sun

completing the bargaining with the Sun in Mr McBain’s barn

destroying(= disabling) the Cootings Machine(= Pollution; climate change) with Father's help -> hope of Josie’s full recovery

 

-Mr Vance

class difference(discrimination) : no chance of higher education(= tutorials here)

Miss Helen’s guilty feeling for her son, not a former lover at first

# Do you regret it? Not going ahead with Rick? I feel I didn’t do my best for him. (235)

He said it would be favoritism(= corruption) when he does her a favor, not for talented kids.

He felt both sadness and delight in her being poor and fragile with age. She was once a beautiful queen, behaved badly, and hurt him hard.

Klara became to know the possibility of change in love.

complicated human heart --> maybe Rick and Josie too ??

 

-Rick’s chance

making his own (drone) system without any tutors and genetic editing

Getting into the college becomes a lottery for no-hopers

 

-hatred against humanoid

# They shouldn’t be taken by machines... First they take the jobs. Then they take the seats at the theater? (238)

 

-Klara and the Sun 

She believes in the Sun’s return strongly.

# In the morning when the Sun returns. It’s possible for us to hope. (253)

She was considering happily going away if Mother quitted her job for Klara. ㅠㅠ
