I have never been able to read Ulysses but I highly recommend this lovely short novel wherein is revealed much about family relations, friendship and love.

I am adding Banville/Black to my list after reading a recommendation for his crime novel Christine Falls while grazing the internets this morning.

According to Wikipedia, “Banville is known for his precise, cold, forensic prose style, Nabokovian inventiveness, and for the dark humour of his generally arch narrators.”
