Graves is an awesome facilitator of discussions. He clearly cares about his students and his willing to work with students to support them. His prompts for the essays are very interesting and, at the same time, not too difficult. Highly recommend this course.
I have taken two classes with Professor Graves and have really enjoyed both of them. He is very knowledgable about Ishiguro and I really enjoyed all of the books we read. It was a pretty big class though which would be my only critique.
My issues with the class were more so because people in the class clearly had not read the books and were scrolling on their laptops in class so discussion was not super interesting. Graves is pretty quiet and sometimes awkward but the books he assigns are really good and interesting
