Product Details

Praise

“Here is an astonishing, disturbing little novel that might have been coughed up from hell.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Ireland’s finest contemporary novelist.” —The Economist

The Book of Evidence is a major new work of fiction in which every suave moment calmly detonates to show the murderous gleam within.” —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

“Remarkable … If all crime novels were like this one, there would no longer be the need for a genre.” —Ruth Rendell
