Rebecca Jones met novelist Kazuo Ishiguro to discuss his first novel in ten years, 'The Buried Giant'. The story tells of an elderly couple who set out on a journey to find their lost son in a semi-mythical post-Roman Britain. Ishiguro dismissed the suggestion the book is a purely fantasy novel. "It sounds like I'm dealing with out and out fantasy, this is more like a love story, it's about the long slog of love," he said.
