“As fascinating, complex, stimulating and energetic as any work of art . . . A work which proves Banville as a master, the artist in total control of his craft.”

Makes this astonishingly attractive novelist one of the most important writers now at work in English – a key thinker, in fact, in fiction. London Review of Books
