Praise

“A feast for Banville superfans and newbies alike, The Singularities is a multiverse triumph.”
—Adrienne Westenfeld, Esquire (Best Books of Fall)
 
“Banville gives readers an exquisite and mischievously voyeuristic view into the lives of others . . . Banville’s crisp wit, sardonic humor, and unique style will keep readers on edge, smiling and questioning, entranced and thoroughly entertained until the very end.”
—George Kendall, Booklist (starred)

“Banville’s poetical fiction explores the implications of the theory of singularity through the human perception of memory, loss, and guilt, even as he slyly braids together characters and themes from his past novels into a meta-narrative about the haunting implications of parallel universes.”
Library Journal (starred)
 
“An intriguing puzzle box . . . Banville seems simply to revel in the delights of creativity, piling up wordplay and allusions (to Joyce, Flaubert, Lewis Carroll, Nabokov), playing the god of his literary realm, and all this with constant flashes of exquisite writing.”
Kirkus Reviews
 
“An artful and atmospheric story of redemption . . . With penetrating psychological insight, Banville tracks the private struggles of these mismatched trespassers . . . The book boasts some of Banville’s greatest prose . . . A fine addition to a brilliant body of work.”
