A unique collaborative publication which documents the lyrics written by Nobel Prize winning author Kazuo Ishiguro for the platinum selling, Grammy nominated, Jazz singer Stacey Kent.

Memorably introduced by Ishiguro himself, The Summer We crossed Europe in the Rain collects the sixteen song lyrics he wrote for world-renowned American singer, Stacey Kent, which were set to music by her partner Jim Tomlinson.

An exquisite coming together of the literary and musical worlds, the lyrics are infused with a sense of yearning, melancholy, love, and the romance of travel and liminal spaces.Further exploring the notion of collaboration and interpretation, the collection is illustrated by the acclaimed Italian artist, Bianca Bagnarelli whose work perfectly captures the atmosphere and sensibility of the songs.
