"Remarkable. . . . The power and strangeness and piercing beauty of [The Sea is] a wonder." - The Washington Post Book World"With his fastidious wit and exquisite style, John Banville is the heir to Nabokov. . . . The Sea [is] his best novel so far."-The Sunday Telegraph"The Sea offers an extraordinary meditation on mortality, grief, death, childhood and memory. . . . Undeniably brilliant." -USA Today"A gem. . . . [The sea]is a presence on every page, its ceaseless undulations echoing constantly in the cadences of the prose. This novel shouldn't simply be read. It needs to be heard, for its sound is intoxicating. . . . A winning work of art." -The Philadelphia Inquirer
