The Sea

by John Banville
£7.99   paperback  Pan Macmillan (2006)

The Sea by John Banville 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 appeared that long-ago summer as if from another world. Drawn to the Grace twins, Chloe and Myles, Max soon found himself entangled in their lives, which were as seductive as they were unsettling. What ensued would haunt him for the rest of his years and shape everything that was to follow.

"A novel in which all of his remarkable gifts come together to produce a real work of art, disquieting, disturbing, beautiful, intelligent, and, in the end, surprisingly, offering consolation."
(Alan Massie, Scotsman)
