Contents: The narrator is Max Morden, a middle-aged Irishman who, soon after his wife's death, has gone back to the seaside town where he spent his summer holidays as a child --
a retreat from the grief, anger, and numbness of his life without her. But it is also a return to the place where he met the Graces, the well --
heeled vacationing family with whom he experienced the strange suddeness of both love and death for the first time. The seductive mother; the imperious father; the twins --
Chloe, fiery and forthright, and Myles, silent and expressionless --
in whose mysterious connection Max became profoundly entangled, each of them a part of the "barely bearable raw immediacy" of his childhood memories.
Responsibility: John Banville.
