    Story

    Is there any difference between memory and invention? That is the question that fuels this stunning novel, written with the depth of character, the clarifying lyricism, and the heart-wrenching humor that have marked all of John Banville's extraordinary works. And it is the question that haunts Alexander Cleave as he plumbs the memories of his first - and perhaps only - love (he, just 15, the woman more than twice his age, the mother of his best friend; the situation impossible, thrilling, devouring, and finally devastating).

    Banvilles prose.

    Any additional comments?

    I consider John Banville/Benjamin Black to be one of the great contemporary writers. His characters and character descriptions are so detailed and convincing that the reader can picture and get to know the person. His stories are always interesting and often end with an unexpected twist.
