    This novel swings to the rhythms of 1950s underground America, jazz, sex, generosity, chill dawns, and drugs, with Sal Paradise and his hero Dean Moriarty, traveller and mystic, the living epitome of beat.

    Great read... go for it! Matt captures the characters brilliantly. And of course Jack K is something else.

    In the wake of its 30th birthday celebrations in 2006, BBC Radio Ulster marked the beginning of a new broadcasting era by embarking on the station's most ambitious project to date: a recounting of the history of Ireland.

    Story

    Balanced, well constructed, beautifully presented, brilliant production! I was rivited all the way. The repetition from one episode to the next stops after a while and is only in places where it is required. To have Irish history, so well presented was just perfect...thanks!

    The narrator is Max Morden, a middle-aged Irishman who, soon after his wife's death, has gone back to the seaside town where he spent his summer holidays as a child; a retreat from the grief, anger, and numbness of his life without her. But it is also a return to the place where he met the Graces, the well-heeled vacationing family with whom he experienced the strange suddenness of both love and death for the first time.

    Karen says: "OVERWHELMINGLY FINE"
    "Let it flow over you"
    Overall

    I had not heard of Banville before this. What is it about the Irish? The command of the language, the humour, pathos, gentility, insight was astounding. At the end I felt I had lost a friend! Beautifully read, this was a true pleasure. It was a gentle journey that could have gone on and on! I recommend this anyone with an interest in the human condition!
