Beschreibung

One part Nietzsche, one part Humbert Humbert, and a soupcon of Milton's Lucifer, Axel Vander, the dizzyingly unreliable narrator of John Banville's masterful new novel, is very old, recently widowed, and the bearer of a fearsome reputation as a literary dandy and bully. A product of the Old World, he is also an escapee from its conflagrations, with the wounds to prove it. And everything about him is a lie.

Now those lies have been unraveled by a mysterious young woman whom Vander calls "Miss Nemesis.” They are to meet in Turin, a city best known for its enigmatic shroud. Is her purpose to destroy Vander or to save him—or simply to show him what lies beneath the shroud in which he has wrapped his life? A splendidly moving exploration of identity, duplicity, and desire, Shroud is Banville's most rapturous performance to date.

John Banville was born in Wexford, Ireland, in 1945. His first book,
Long Lankin, was published in 1970. His other books are
Nightspawn,
Birchwood,
Doctor

Copernicus,
Kepler,
The Newton Letter,
Mefisto,
The Book of Evidence (which was shortlisted for the 1989 Booker Prize),
Ghosts,
Athena,
The Untouchable, and
Eclipse. He lives in Dublin.
