'Billy Gray was my best friend and I fell in love with his mother.' Alexander Cleave, an actor who thinks his best days are behind him, remembers his first unlikely affair as a teenage boy in a small town in 1950s Ireland: the illicit meetings in a rundown cottage outside town, assignations in the back of his lover's car on sunny morning and rain-soaked afternoons.

Der silberne Schwan : Roman by John Banville( Book )

5 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in German and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dublin, 50er-Jahre. Als Billy Hunt, ein Freund aus Collegetagen, sich bei Quirke meldet, weil sich seine junge, attraktive Frau Deirdre angeblich das Leben genommen hat, kann Quirke den Ärger schon von Weitem riechen. Quirke, Pathologe und ehemaliger Trinker, ist jedoch kein Mann, der dem Ärger gerne aus dem Weg geht, und so ermittelt er auf eigene Faust. Deirdre, Besitzerin des Schönheitssalons>>Der silberne Schwan>>, ist ermordet worden, und in Betracht kommen vor allem ihr Geliebter und Partner Leslie White, ein undurchsichtiger ehemaliger Friseur, der es nach Deirdres Tod zu allem Überfluss auch noch auf Quirkes Tochter abgesehen hat, sowie der seltsame Geistheiler Dr. Kreutz, den eigentlich nur Frauen aufsuchen. Angetrieben von der eigenen Einsamkeit, dem schlechten Verhältnis zu seiner Tochter und von einer unstillbaren Neugier wird Quirke in Dublins zwielichtige Welt von sexuellen Obsessionen, Prüderie, Erpressung und Mord hineingezogen, in der selbst der Respekt einflössende Inspektor Hackett ihm kaum Unterstützung bieten kann.

"Aloft offers a reexamination of the American dream from the inside out, through the voice of Jerry Battle, a suburban middle-aged man who has lived his entire life on Long Island, New York." "Battle's favorite diversion is to fly his small plane solo; slipping away for quick flights over the Island or to the coastal towns of New England, Jerry has been disappearing for years. Then a family crisis occurs, and Jerry finds he must face his disengagement in his relationships: with his deceased wife, the circumstances of whose death he has never fully accepted; with his former girlfriend, whom he still longs for; with his daughter, who refuses to address the disease that threatens her life; with his son, who is in danger of losing the family business; and with his father, whom he has placed in a nursing home."--Jacket
