really liked it
Read in December, 2011

I have read a number of Banville's crime fiction books written under the name Benjamin Black but have never read one of his written as himself.

This was a beautifully written elegaic story of an old man whose wife has recently died. He goes back to the seaside town where he spent time at as a young boy and reminsces about the family he spent a lot of time with and where he first experienced passionate love, loss and death.
