The Infinities by John Banville is certainly not a mystery, but Banville, a winner of the Man Booker Prize, has crafted a story about the terrible and wonderful plight of being human. The Spectator in London calls it "..may be one of the twelve best books of the decade, or even of several decades," The Times of London says "...that every page delights, startles and uplifts," while the Irish Independent exhorts "...read it and be dazzled" $25.95
