Left standing in the entrance hall, I took the opportunity to take a good look at my surroundings. There could be little doubt both Sophie and Boris expected me to know my way around, and certainly, the longer I stood gazing at the choice of half-open doors facing me, the dingy yellow wallpaper with its faint floral pattern, the exposed piping climbing from floor to ceiling behind the coat stand, I could feel some memory of this entrance hall gradually returning to me.
After a few minutes I went through into the living room. Although there were a number of features I did not recognize - the pair of old sunken armchairs to either side of the disused fireplace were undoubtedly recent acquisitions, my impression was that I could remember this room more clearly than I had the entrance hall. The large oval dining table pushed against the wall, the second door leading through to the kitchen, the dark shapeless sofa, the tired orange carpet were all distinctly familiar.
Ishiguro, The Unconsoled.
Let me urge Ishiguro on you one more time, please. Also too, was in downtown Gaithersburg today for the first time in a year, it was wonderfully uncanny, completely familiar and like the thousandth first time ever. Strange, sometimes happily, days. Here's the high school me and this guy went to: I don't remember it looking like this at all.
