    From Indiebound: When Alice's dad moves out, leaving her with her troubled mother, she does the only thing that feels right: she retreats to her family's old Renaissance tent in the backyard, determined to live there until her dad comes home. But summers contain multitudes, and soon Alice meets an odd new friend, Harriet, whose obsession with the school's science fair is equal only to her conviction that Alice's best stroke is backstroke, not freestyle. Yoda tells Leia that Luke was her brother and her father is Darth Vader. In a wider sense, I find the pagan world of the Greeks highly appealing, and wish we could regain their state of innocence and sophistication. Bring back the old gods, I say.

    Question: Many readers have commented on the humor in this novel. Some of his books, such as The Newton Lettera novella, work just as well without these sinister touches. Tiny Infinities is both meaningful and memorable, and the lessons that Alice learns in one transformative summer are universal. Sometimes the style approaches verse of a slightly annoying kind — "Fine gods we are, that we must muster to a mortal must" — but more often stays on the right side of it: "The water, coiling from the tap like running metal, shatters on her knuckles in silvery streels. Han and Chewbacca are taken to Jabba's palace where they are forced to do battle with two nexu that Jabba keeps in a pit beneath his audience chamber, where the rancor used to be. During the mental battle, Leia finds her crystal and receives an image of Vader confronting Yoda.

    The real subject of this unforgettable, beautifully written book is nothing less than the enigma of mortal existence. Final book jacket design for Tiny Infinities by J. Tiny Infinities by J. Today I am delighted to introduce you to her and her book.

Then little discrepancies start to show up, such as a mention of recent English popes. In concepting the cover, Infinities book wanted to convey a shift from light to dark and day to night and embrace Alice's overgrown backyard as a visual focus. His wife, son and daughter wait for his death, with the mixed feelings that attend the end of any great man.

The gods, they must be happy with Mr. At what point does light turn to dark?

Certainly the book addresses the "infinities" of its title but it also observes the unities of dramatic construction, taking place in an Irish country house on a single summer day.

Banville seems to have taken over this particular plotline from Heinrich von Kleist's play Amphitryon, which turns on the philosophical problems raised by the classical gods' ability to impersonate people exactly.

Alice applies this to her own life, thinking, at what point does "her parents being together" become "her parents being apart"?

Leia burns her father's body on a funeral pyre before leaving with Han on the Falcon to rejoin the Rebels and save the galaxy. Banville has shown before that a heavy gloss of style doesn't have to rule out artistic restraint and some resemblance to a speaking voice, but, sad to say, he doesn't do so here.

Question: There is something so classical and familiar about the death bed scene, the family patriarch dying and the family coming from far and wide to gather at his bedside.
