Praise For Eclipse…
“Like Nabokov, Banville captures the vivid aesthetic pleasures of quotidian reality in the most satisfying ways.” –The New York Times Book Review
“An impressive, effective novel, bracing as a nightmare.”–Chicago Tribune
“Mr. Banville is that rare writer who can pack all five senses into a declarative sentence.”–The Wall Street Journal
“[Eclipse] captures in its pages a felt life so dense, so swift in its paranoid momentum, that the whole idea of the novel as a window to the self seems viable again…. This is as true as things ever get.”–Sven Birkerts, Esquire
“[Banville] has an uncanny ability to pinpoint and record sensations rarely brought to consciousness. . . . Eclipse wakes us up to things we should have noticed.” –San Francisco Chronicle
