Product description

The Remains of the Day is a profoundly compelling portrait of the perfect English butler and of his fading, insular world in post-war England. At the end of his three decades of service at Darlington Hall, Stevens embarks on a country drive, during which he looks back over his career to reassure himself that he has served humanity by serving "a great gentleman." But lurking in his memory are doubts about the true nature of Lord Darlington's "greatness" and graver doubts about his own faith in the man he served.

Review quote

"Simon Prebble's glorious voice is perfect as that of Stevens, the quintessential British butler---or so Stevens himself might dare to hope....At times it seems like a full cast is narrating since Prebble acquires an American accent on demand, as well as regional British accents. This audiobook may inspire multiple listens." ---AudioFile Earphones Award Winner
