He lives in Dublin.Glittering visual evocation expressed in a tone at once fresh and wistfully ironic ... a world at once random dreamlike and deeply experienced4 STARS. Banville proves here over and over that one can write with the true texture if erotic memory without resorting to titillation. He deserves to outsell Fifty Shades of Grey tenfold.4 STARS. Prose that lingers on every last physical and psychological detail.Banville does regretful roues better than almost anyone ... His use of language can also be startlingly brilliant ...
