The Infinities

The Infinities

John Banville


On a languid midsummer’s day within the nation-state, the Godley kin gathers on the bedside of Adam, a well known mathematician and their patriarch. yet they aren't on my own of their vigil. round them hovers a extended family of mischievous immortals—Zeus, Pan, and Hermes between them —who start to fan the flames of difficulty for the Godleys, to occasionally wildly accidental impact. The Infinities—John Banville’s first novel for the reason that his Booker Prize-winning and bestselling The Sea—is right away a gloriously earthy romp and a smart examine the negative, incredible plight of being human.
