I’m trying out this cut-paste review thing from GoodReads. I absolutely loved this book. I’ve read John Banville in his Benjamin Black guise (Christine Falls, The Lemur, The Silver Swan, Elegy for April) and love that Irish noir detective stuff. The books he writes under his own name are… I’m actually at a loss for words. The writing is a revelation, and it’s not one of those fuck you this is literature you’re not supposed to ENJOY it books. It’s enjoyable and funny and compelling and while you’re enjoying the story you have to stop and just go holy shit that was an amazing paragraph.

Read all of his books. He’s brilliant.
