-JAPANESE-BORN AUTHOR Kazuo Ishiguro won Britain's top literary award, the Booker Prize, this week for his novel "The Remains of the Day."

After receiving the $32,000 prize, Ishiguro paid tribute to British writer Salman Rushdie, a former Booker winner now in hiding following Iranian death threats over his novel "The Satanic Verses."

Ishiguro's novel, selected from a shortlist of six, is a love story about a British aristocrat's butler who takes a motoring vacation in the west of England during the 1950s.

Nagasaki-born Ishiguro, 39, arrived in England at the age of 6 and now lives in south London. He writes in English. - Reuters News Service
