A lesson in internet hoaxes blowing up in 3-2-1: Account on the left is apparently a trolling account (only has 3 tweets right now), @FaberBooks on the right is the publisher's official account. Check your sources, tweeps! (As far as I can see, Kazuo Ishiguro has not died, phew.) pic.twitter.com/mkoN0yF2d4
