WINNER OF THE 2005 MAN BOOKER PRIZE When art historian Max Morden returns to the seaside village where he once spent a childhood holiday, he is both escaping from a recent loss and confronting a distant trauma. The Grace family had appeared that long-ago summer as if from another world. Mr and Mrs Grace, with their worldly ease and candour, were unlike any adults he had met before. But it was his contemporaries, the Grace twins Myles and Chloe, who most fascinated Max. He grew to know them intricately, even intimately, and what ensued would haunt him for the rest of his years and shape everything that was to follow. Praise for The Sea: 'With his fastidious wit and exquisite style, John Banville is the heir to Nabokov. The Sea [is] his best novel so far . . . Banville's prose is sublime' Daily Telegraph 'This is a novel in which all Banville's remarkable gifts come together to produce a real work of art, disquieting, disturbing, beautiful, intelligent, and in the end, surprisingly, offering consolation' Allan Massie, Scotsman 'The Sea is a beautiful novel, challenging and richly rewarding . . . It is a comfort to know that we have a lord of language among us' Gerry Dukes, Irish Independent Biographies John Banville was born in Wexford, Ireland, in 1945. He is the author of thirteen previous novels including The Book of Evidence, which was shortlisted for the 1989 Booker Prize. He has received a literary award from the Lannan Foundation. He lives in Dublin.
