Ode. Ramble around the city of Dublin in your mind while reading John Banville’s personal reminiscences of his life there in a book titled, Time Pieces. The city was a special destination during his childhood when on his birthday, he and his mother would travel from their small town for a day in the city. The photos by Paul Joyce add to Banville’s writing, and gave a clear visual effect to supplement the text. Fans of Banville’s novels will enjoy the references to Quirke and what the places where Banville set him meant to the author. Readers who enjoy Dublin will be brought back to their own memories of that place through Banville’s fine writing about his own recollections.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
