Reviews

"Like Nabokov, Banville captures the vivid aesthetic pleasures of quotidian reality in the most satisfying ways." -The New York Times Book Review

"An impressive, effective novel, bracing as a nightmare."-Chicago Tribune

"Mr. Banville is that rare writer who can pack all five senses into a declarative sentence."-The Wall Street Journal

"[Eclipse] captures in its pages a felt life so dense, so swift in its paranoid momentum, that the whole idea of the novel as a window to the self seems viable again.... This is as true as things ever get."-Sven Birkerts, Esquire

"[Banville] has an uncanny ability to pinpoint and record sensations rarely brought to consciousness. . . . Eclipse wakes us up to things we should have noticed." -San Francisco Chronicle
