Description
When the unemployed, middle-aged art historian Morrow is hired by small-time crook Morden to authenticate and catalog a cache of eight paintings stored in a decrepit house, his life takes a turn for the surreal, in this novel by the Booker Award-winning author of The Sea. As Morden and his seedy assistant Francie lead Morrow through the house, Morrow catches a glimpse through a crumbling wall of a woman's leg in stockings and black high heels. Morrow's becomes increasingly obsessed with the woman—identified only as "A"—but soon there will be other complications as well.

"A strange and dreamlike book . . . [John] Banville has a breathtaking style."—Boston Globe
