Product Synopsis

'A nearly perfectly fashioned work of art ...The Newton Letter gave this reader such pleasurable excitement that he found it impossible to concentrate on anything until he had read it again to make sure that it seemed as good on the seconding reading. It did' Irish Times A historian, on the brink of completing a book on Isaac Newton, rents a cottage in southern Ireland for the summer. As the summer wears on and he dissects Newton's mental collapse of 1693 he becomes distracted by the mysterious occupants of Fern House and finds himself constructing their imagined histories to powerful effect. His elaborate attempts to decipher the complex web of relationships are, however, far from accurate ...'How is one to convey half-adequately that Banville's The Newton Letter is something out of the ordinary?' Sunday Times 'Banville's prose has a dazzling amplitude and resource ...a novelist of international calibre' Boston Globe 'Very precise and evocative ...full of teasing alignments and variations' Financial Times Volume Three of the Revolutions Trilogy

Staff Choice

Man retires to a house by the sea to complete his life’s work. Anyone who’s read Banville before will recognise him immediately in this scenario, in which a troubled academic returns to the rural Ireland of his youth in the hope of reigniting his tired intellect, only to awaken dangerous new passions as well as old ghosts. In a little over a hundred pages, John Banville creates a perfect literary landscape, its colours luminous, its roads mysterious, its history packed with more incident than lesser writers might achieve in a novel three times as long. Exquisitely written and compellingly told, this stunning novella has substance as well as style and reminds us of why Banville is one of the most accomplished novelists working in English today. - Nina
