9780241004326: The Blue Guitar

From John Banville, one of the world's greatest writers, comes The Blue Guitar, a story of theft and the betrayal of friendship.

Adultery is always put in terms of thieving. But we were happy together, simply happy.

Oliver Orme used to be a painter, well known and well rewarded, but the muse has deserted him. He is also, as he confesses, a petty thief; he does not steal for gain, but for the thrill of it. HIs worst theft is Polly, the wife of his friend Marcus, with whom he has had an affair. When the affair is discovered, Oliver hides himself away in his childhood home. From here he tells the story of a year, from one autumn to the next. Many surprises and shocks await him, and by the end of his story, he will be forced to face himself and seek a road towards redemption.

Praise for Ancient Light:

'Everything I want from a love story: sexy, convincing, baffling, funny, sad and unforgettable' Evening Standard, Books of the Year

'Illuminating, funny, devastating. A meditation of breathtaking beauty and profundity on love and loss and death' Financial Times

Recensione:

Everything I want from a love story: sexy, convincing, baffling, funny, sad and unforgettable ( Evening Standard, Books of the Year, on 'Ancient Light')

Banville's exquisitely written novel unravels the deceptions of memory with wit and pathos ( Telegraph, on 'Ancient Light')

Glittering visual evocation, expressed in a tone at once fresh and wistfully ironic. A world at once random, dreamlike and deeply experienced ( Sunday Times, on 'Ancient Light')

Illuminating, funny, devastating. A meditation of breathtaking beauty and profundity on love and loss and death ( Financial Times, on 'Ancient Light')
