STOCKHOLM (AP) — Novelist Kazuo Ishiguro, best known for his book “The Remains of the Day,” has been awarded the 2017 Nobel Prize in Literature.

Born in Japan, Ishiguro now lives in Britain and writes in English. The Swedish Academy cited him for “novels of great emotional force, [he] has uncovered the abyss beneath our illusory sense of connection with the world.”

The prize is worth 9 million Swedish krona ($1.1 million).
