Ok, its raining - but that's summertime isn't it? And there is a sly purpose behind all this rain - you can sit and read without guilt for hours on end if you're lucky enough to be on holiday. And the exciting news is, there's a new Banville!!
Its called Ancient Light, published by Viking and, together with Eclipse and Shroud, it completes a trilogy with Alexander Cleave, the failed actor and narrator in Eclipse and father of Cass in Shroud, back as narrator here.
Could anyone wish for more? [Ok, reading in the sun is cool too!]
