Blurb: 
Awarded the Booker Prize for Best Novel, 1989 A tragic, spiritual portrait of a perfect English butler and his reaction to his fading insular world in post-war England. The novel"s narrator, Stevens, is a perfect English butler who tries to give his narrow existence form and meaning through the self-effacing, almost mystical practice of his profession. In a career that spans the Second World War, Stevens is oblivious of the real life that goes on around him -- oblivious, for instance, of the fact that his aristocratic employer is a Nazi sympathizer. Still, there are even larger matters at stake in this heartbreaking, pitch-perfect novel -- namely, Stevens" own ability to allow some bit of life-affirming love into his tightly repressed existence.
