John Banville's Ancient Light

Monday, October 08, 2012

Man Booker Prize-winning author John Banville discusses his new novel, Ancient Light, about an actor in the twilight of his life and his career. It’s a meditation on love and loss, on the inscrutable immediacy of the past in our present lives, on how invention shapes memory and memory shapes the man.
