Winner of the 2005 Man Booker Prize

A brilliant, sensuous, discombobulating novel. * Spectator * Poetry seems to come easily to Banville. There is so much to applaud in this book that it deserves more than one reading. * Literary Review * You can smell and feel and see his world with extraordinary clarity. It is a work of art, and I'll bet it will still be read and admired in seventy-five years. -- Rick Gekoski * The Times * A novel in which all of his remarkable gifts come together to produce a real work of art, disquieting, beautiful, intelligent, and in the end, surprisingly, offering consolation. -- Allan Massie * Scotsman *
