In a futuristic, dystopian world, Artificial Friends (AFs) are available for parents to buy for their lonely children. Displayed in a shop along with magazines and other household items, you can walk in and buy a solar-powered humanoid AF that can talk, observe, learn, and be a companion to your child.

Sounds a little creepy, right? Well, this is the premise of Nobel Prize-winning author, Kazuo Ishiguro’s new book, Klara and the Sun.
