Alexander Cleave, actor, has left his career and his family behind and banished himself to his childhood home. He wants to retire from life, but finds this impossible in a house brimming with presences, some ghostly, some undeniably human. Memories, anxiety for the future, and more particularly, for his beloved but troubled daughter, conspire to distract him from his dreaming retirement.

This humane and beautifully written story tells the tragic tale of a man, intelligent, preposterous, and vulnerable, who in attempting to bring the performance to a close, finds himself travelling inevitably towards a devastating denouement.

    " I hate this book. It hooked me in the beginning but never went anyplace interesting. The characters are dull and depressing. The first book I hated that I actually finished, which adds nothing to its worth. It was painful to the end. "

    " I was a bit disappointed in this book. The language is beautiful, though at time pretentious, but considering that it is supposed to be a ghost story of sorts, amazingly little happens in the 200+ pages. I did enjoy it, but will not likely read another Banville. "

    " Fairly ornate writing, but to what end? There wasn't one character, or a single mood, emotion, or sentence that gripped me. Or even made me pleased to be reading. Just one of an endless stream of examples of why most contemporary literary fiction is not for me. "
