Abstract

This article considers Kazuo Ishiguro's dystopian novel Never Let Me Go as a text which utilizes memoir as a means of presenting a possible future where human rights are decimated, but where human stories remain. The novel is considered as an example of an ongoing science-fictional model where life-writing acts as a window into a world where the individual's experiences guide the reader through the speculative world.
