The Sea

By John Banville

In this luminous Booker Prize-winning novel about love, loss and the unpredictable power of memory, we are introduced to Max Morden, a middle-aged Irishman who has gone back to the seaside town where he spent his summer holidays as a child to cope with the recent loss of his wife. What Max comes to understand about the past, and about its indelible effects on him, is at the center of this beautiful novel.
