Descripción Vintage, 1998. Estado de conservación: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "Maskell takes his place with John le Carre's Alec Leamas as one of spy fiction's greatest characters. Poetic and deeply affecting." -People "[Banville's] books are not only an illuminating read-for they are always packed with information and learning-but a joyful and durable source of aesthetic satisfaction." -The New York Review of Books "Enthralling. Victor Maskell is a thinly disguised Anthony Blunt. Banville has pulled off a marvelous series of tricks." -Anita Brooker,The Spectator "Banville has the skill, ambition and learning to stand at the end of the great tradition of modernist writers." -Times Literary Supplement "It must by now be an open secret that on this [U.K.] side of the Atlantic, Banville is the most intelligent and stylish novelist at work." - George Steiner,The Observer "Banville's acute characterization and laceratingly witty prose capture perfectly the paradoxically idealistic yet cynical mood of the upper classes in 1930s Britain." -Time Out "An icy detailed portrait of a traitor, and a precise meditation on the nature of belief and betrayal. subtle, sad, and deeply moving work." -Kirkus Reviews "Delectably droll and masterful. The rich fabric of this novel blends the shrewd humor of a comedy of manners with the suspense of a tale of espionage." -Booklist "[Written with] grace and intelligence. His story is so well told that why he spied-and who betrayed him-become secondary." -Library Journal. Nº de ref. de la librería ABE_book_new_0679767479

Descripción Random House USA Inc, United States, 1998. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. 203 x 130 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Victor Maskell has been betrayed: in Parliament, a revelation of his double, perhaps quadruple, life of espionage; in the press, photographs and inch-high type. But why now - as he enters his seventies, diagnosed with cancer, twenty years into retirement - and by whom? To figure it out before his time runs out, and in case public vindication is somehow possible, he begins to write his memoirs - to scrape away at the toffee-coloured varnish and caked soot left by a lifetime of dissembling. Maskell s need to understand, to explain, to atone, to not atone, is what fuels John Banville s stunning new novel - trenchantly funny, vividly evocative, complex in precisely the way Maskell himself is complex: clear-sighted yet blinded by old love and desire, expertly duplicitous yet terrified that he may not have been a master of the game after all. Who could have remained inactive in this ferocious century? Maskell asks. Certainly not he: scholar and adventurer; military man and curator of art; breaker and keeper of codes; Royalist and Marxist; in secret service to both the Comintern and the British monarch; husband and father, and lover of men; Irishman, Englishman, man of indeterminate national alliance. Dissolution and drinking at Cambridge during the 1920s, recruitment and earnest Marxism in London during the 1930s, loyalties and ideals tested during World War II and the Cold War. It all comes back to Maskell, and he sets it down in brilliant detail and with scathing perceptiveness. But the more he remembers, the more he s compelled to wonder if these fragmented lives add up to one life entirely. After all, the attraction - and the exhilarating terror - of being a spy was that nothing,absolutely nothing, is as it seems. Taking the Cambridge spies as his starting point for Victor Maskell, Banville quickly moves beyond the mere facts of espionage toward the intricate heart of the spy himself.
