    Victor Maskell has been betrayed. After the announcement in the Commons, the hasty revelation of his double life of wartime espionage, his photograph is all over the papers. His disgrace is public, his position as curator of the Queen’s pictures terminated… Maskell writes his own testament, in an act not unlike the restoration of one of his beloved pictures, in order for the process of verification and attribution to begin.

    On a languid midsummer's day in the countryside, old Adam Godley, a renowned theoretical mathematician, is dying. His family gathers at his bedside: his son, young Adam, struggling to maintain his marriage to a radiantly beautiful actress; his 19-year-old daughter, Petra, filled with voices and visions as she waits for the inevitable; their mother, Ursula, whose relations with the Godley children are strained at best; and Petra's "young man" - very likely more interested in the father than the daughter - who has arrived for a superbly ill-timed visit.

    Ein sehr persönlicher Dublin-Stadtführer und zugleich eine autobiographische Reise des großen irischen Schriftstellers und Man Booker Prize-Trägers John Banville an ganz besondere Orte in der Sehnsuchtsstadt seiner Kindheit. Geboren und aufgewachsen in Wexford durfte John Banville als Kind an seinem Geburtstag die exzentrische Lieblingstante in Dublin besuchen - das für ihn so zu einem Ort der Verheißungen wurde. Nachdem er als Erwachsener dorthin gezogen war, sah Banville Dublin zwar mit realistischeren Augen, und doch blieb die Faszination, die die Stadt schon auf den Siebenjährigen ausgeübt hatte.

    Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable, audiobook edition of The Blue Guitar by John Banville, read by Gerry O'Brien. Adultery is always put in terms of thieving, but we were happy together, simply happy. Oliver Orme is a painter who has abandoned his art. His days are now haunted by loss: loss of desire, of artistic vision, of the people he has loved. And only now does he realize that those around him understand him more than he does himself.

    Is there any difference between memory and invention? That is the question that fuels this stunning novel, written with the depth of character, the clarifying lyricism, and the heart-wrenching humor that have marked all of John Banville's extraordinary works. And it is the question that haunts Alexander Cleave as he plumbs the memories of his first - and perhaps only - love (he, just 15, the woman more than twice his age, the mother of his best friend; the situation impossible, thrilling, devouring, and finally devastating).

    As much about the life of the city as it is about a life lived, sometimes, in the city, John Banville's "quasi-memoir" is as layered, emotionally rich, witty, and unexpected as any of his novels. Born and bred in a small town a train ride away from Dublin, Banville saw the city as a place of enchantment when he was a child, a birthday treat, the place where his beloved, eccentric aunt lived. And as he guides us around the city, delighting in its cultural, architectural, political, and social history, he interweaves the memories that are attached to particular places and moments.

    Alexander Cleave, actor, has left his career and his family behind and banished himself to his childhood home. He wants to retire from life, but finds this impossible in a house brimming with presences, some ghostly, some undeniably human. Memories, anxiety for the future, and more particularly, for his beloved but troubled daughter, conspire to distract him from his dreaming retirement.

    Kunsthistorikeren Max Morden er vendt tilbage til den kystby, hvor han tilbragte sine ferier som dreng - en retræte fra den sorg, vrede og tomhed, han føler, efter at hans kone nylig er død af kræft. Men det er også en tilbagevenden til det sted, hvor han som 10-11-årig mødte den velhavende ferierende Grace-familie og første gang oplevede kærlighed, sex og pludselig død. Romanen omhandler dels Mordens skæbnesvangre oplevelser som dreng, dels minderne om hans kone Anna og dels de både betydningsfulde og trivielle begivenheder i hans nuværende liv.

    Old Adam Godley’s time on earth is drawing to an end, and as his wife and children gather at the family home, little do they realize that they are not the only ones who have come to observe the spectacle. The mischievous Greek gods, too, have come; as tensions fray and desire bubbles over, their spying soon becomes intrusion becomes intervention, until the mortals’ lives – right before their eyes – seem to be changing faster than they can cope with.
