The Infinities

John Banville

Old Adam Godley’s time on earth is drawing to an end, and as his wife and children gather at the family home, little do they realize that they are not the only ones who have come to observe the spectacle: the mischievous Greek gods, too, have come. As tensions fray and desire bubbles over, their spying on the unfolding family drama soon becomes intervention, until the mortals’ lives – right before their eyes – seem to be changing faster than they can cope with. 

The Infinities is both a salacious delight and a penetrating exploration of the terrifying, wonderful, immutable plight of being human.
