  • Улики
  • Жанр: Современная проза
  • «Улики», роман одного из ярких представителей современной ирландской литературы Джона Бэнвилла, рождается в результате глубокого осмысления и развития лучших традиций европейской исповедальной и философской прозы. Преступление главного героя рассматривается автором как тупик в эволюции эгоцентрического сознания личности, а наказание убийцы заключается в трагической переоценке собственного духовного опыта. Книга прочитывается как исповедь мятущегося интеллекта и подводит своеобразный итог его самоидентификации на исходе XX века. Для всех интересующихся современной зарубежной прозой.«…В „Уликах“ есть убийство и есть похищение картины; но не дай бог вам купить этот роман в качестве вечернего детектива или самолетного чтива. Будете дико разочарованы. „Улики“ – антик, ценность, раритет, экспонат кунсткамеры, роман тонкий, как папиросная бумага. Игра заключается не в сюжете и даже не в стилистике, а в преображении бумаги в холст, романа – в картину. Он написан от лица убийцы, который среди бела дня вытащил из частной картинной галереи „Портрет дамы с перчатками“ (XVII век, Рембрандт, Вермеер или Хальс), взял первую попавшуюся женщину в заложницы, а потом убил ее и выбросил картину. Довольно скоро его арестовывают; в заключении он начинает писать что-то вроде исповеди. Его манера описывать произошедшее и есть главное событие романа; а детектив – липовый; не в убийстве дело…»

  • Ancient Light
  • Жанр: Современная проза
  • Is there any difference between memory and invention? That is the question that fuels this stunning novel, written with the depth of character, the clarifying lyricism, and the heart-wrenching humor that have marked all of John Banville’s extraordinary works. And it is the question that haunts Alexander Cleave as he plumbs the memories of his first—and perhaps only—love (he, just fifteen, the woman more than twice his age, the mother of his best friend; the situation impossible, thrilling, devouring, and finally devastating)… and of his daughter, lost to a kind of madness of mind and heart ...

  • Eclipse
  • Жанр: Современная проза
  • With this latest novel, John Banville—who has forged a brilliant international reputation with such works as and applies piercing reality to a ghost story to create a profoundly moving tale of a man confronting a life gone awry.The renowned actor Alexander Cleave has had a breakdown on stage. To recover, he retreats to his boyhood home. Haunted when he lived there as a youth, the house still shelters spirits, and now there are two new lodgers in residence. Overcome by resonant memories that seem to rise up out of the house itself, Cleave is compelled to consider his ruined career, his failing marriage, and his poignant relationship with an estranged daughter destined for doom. Breathtaking, even hypnotic, is a virtuoso performance by a writer in a league with Nabokov and DeLillo.

  • Kepler
  • Жанр: Историческая проза
  • In a brilliant illumination of the Renaissance mind, acclaimed Irish novelist John Banville re-creates the life of Johannes Kepler and his incredible drive to chart the orbits of the planets and the geometry of the universe. Wars, witchcraft, and disease rage throughout Europe. For this court mathematician, vexed by domestic strife, appalled by the religious upheavals that have driven him from exile to exile, and vulnerable to the whims of his eccentric patrons, astronomy is a quest for some form of divine order. For all the mathematical precision of his exploration, though, it is a seemingly elusive quest until he makes one glorious and profound discovery.Johannes Kepler, born in 1571 in south Germany, was one of the world's greatest mathematicians and astronomers. The author of this book uses this history as a background to his novel, writing a work of historical fiction that is rooted in poverty, squalor and the tyrannical power of emperors.

  • Жанр: Современная проза

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 ...

  • The Book Of Evidence
  • Жанр: Современная проза
  • The Book of Evidence is a 1989 novel by the Irish author John Banville. The book is narrated by Freddie Montgomery, a 38 year old scientist, who murders a servant girl during an attempt to steal a painting from a neighbor. Freddie is an aimless drifter, and though he is a perceptive observer of himself and his surroundings, he is largely amoral. The end of the novel makes it unclear whether anything Freddie has said is true. When asked by the inspector how much of it is true, Freddie responds, "True, Inspector? All of it. None of it. Only the shame." The Book of Evidence won Ireland 's Guinness Peat Aviation Award in 1989, and was short-listed for Britain 's Booker Prize. In reviewing the book, Publishers Weekly compared Banville's writing to that of Albert Camus and Fyodor Dostoevsky. The writing style continues Banville's attempt to give his prose "the kind of denseness and thickness that poetry has".
