Ancient Light

by John Banville
£8.99   paperback  Penguin Books Ltd (2013)

Ancient Light by John Banville 'Billy Gray was my best friend and I fell in love with his mother.'
 
In a small town in 1950s Ireland a fifteen-year-old boy has illicit meetings with a thirty-five-year-old woman - in the back of her car on sunny mornings, and in a rundown cottage in the country on rain-soaked afternoons. Unsure why she has chosen him, he becomes obsessed and tormented by this first love.
 
Half a century later, actor Alexander Cleave - grieving for the recent loss of his daughter - recalls these trysts, trying to make sense of the boy he was and of the needs and frailties of the human heart.
