Reviews

LJ Reviews 2015 April #1

The Man Booker Prize-winning Banville returns with another of his tough-to-like, tough-to-ignore characters, in this case a reasonably successful artist and secret petty thief named Oliver Otway Orme who possesses the self-congratulatory self-deprecation you might expect of someone thus named. Disappointed that his canvases don't capture what he envisions, Oliver has betrayed probably his closest friend by sleeping with his wife and upon discovery feels compelled to flee to the house where he was born to sort through his memories. With a 50,000-copy first printing.
