I might have messed up. I had his novel The Sea but somebody requested it so I am going to have to send it off before I had a chance to read it.

All I know is it is on the "1001 books to read before you die" so I was going to read it someday.')

No I haven't read this book, The Sea, but there is also a hardback available.  If you cancel, the other person could request the hardback.  the description sounds good.

I think I'll check at the library to see if they have any of his books.

I just discovered this morning that Banville uses a psuedonym - Benjamin Black.
