Hardcover. New York, Alfred A. Knopf, 1st, 2010, Book: Very Good, Dust Jacket: Very Good, 273 pages. Hardcover. SIGNED BY AUTHOR. Decked foreedge. Teal fabric covered, Very clean inside and out. Review from back cover, "There's a cast of characters worthy of a modern-day Shakespeare; bathetic descriptions of using the lavatory that would have had Beckett smiling; and the gods' playful pursuit of women that could be lifted straight from Ovid's The Art of Love. Banville, already esteemed for the brilliance of his language, proves in this novel to have a mastery, too, of these many colliding universes."
