The Buried Giant by Kazuo Ishiguro

I think it was the combined lure of a hint of King Arthur and of Ishiguro's prose that drew me to this book. A fascinating study of memory, and a poignant look at devotion. Plus an interesting premise and tale. Not as much Arthurian legend as I might have hoped, as this takes place in the aftermath of his rule, but plenty of fine writing, even if I never did get entirely lost in the story.
