Reviews

Remarkable. . . If all crime novels were like this one, there would no longer be the need for a genre -- Ruth Rendell
The Book of Evidence is a major work of fiction in which every suave moment calmly detonates to show the murderous gleam within. Banville writes a dangerous and clear-running prose and has a grim gift of seeing people's souls -- Don DeLillo
Banville has excelled himself in a flawlessly flowing prose whose lyricism, patrician irony and aching sense of loss are reminiscent of Lolita * Observer *
One of the most important writers now at work in English - a key thinker, in fact, in fiction * London Review of Books *
