A Little Night Music

I just love when I think of nerdy, vaguely-pun-like titles for my posts, like this one about Kazuo Ishiguro's Nocturnes. Perfect for a book made up of five loosely connected stories revolving around music and nighttime, right?

I'd been looking forward to reading this for a while because I love the other two books I've read by the author, Never Let Me Go and The Remains of the Day. The premise of this one made it sound like a cross between one of those and Bel Canto. Instead, I was surprised to discover that the stories were all actually pretty funny. Not quite what I was expecting, but still a pleasant reading experience.
