The 2017 Nobel Prize for Literature has been awarded to British novelist Kazuo Ishiguro.

Born in Japan in 1954, the author's family moved to England when he was five years old.

The writer, "in novels of great emotional force, has uncovered the abyss beneath our illusory sense of connection with the world", said the Nobel Prize commitee in a statement on Thursday.

He is best known for the dystopian work Never Let Me Go and The Remains of the Day, a book Ishiguro has said he wrote in four weeks. 

The 62-year-old also writes screenplays.

Ishiguro studied at the University of Kent, receiving an undergraduate degree in English and Philosophy and later received a Master's degree from the University of East Anglia in Creative Writing.
