London Literature Festival

This event has already taken place.

Host: London Literature Festival
Location: Southbank Centre, Belvedere Road, London SE1 8XX
Speaker: John Banville

Booker Prize-winner John Banville discusses his new novel Ancient Light. Focusing on the life of Alexander Cleave, an actor who thinks his best days are behind him, it combines the memories of a first love affair in the 1950s with the more recent recollection of his daughter's suicide. Throughout, Banville's exquisite prose shines through, evoking moments of passion and intense grief.

'With his fastidious wit and exquisite style, John Banville is the heir to Nabokov.' (Sunday Telegraph)
