John Banville

John Banville (Wexford, desimber 1945) is in Ierske romanskriuwer en filmsenarioskriuwer. Syn roman The Book of Evidence (1989) waard nominearre foar de Man Booker Prize en wûn de Guinness Peat Aviationpriis. Syn achttjinde roman, The Sea, wûn de Man Booker Prize yn 2005. Somtiden brûkt er de skûlnamme Benjamin Black.

Banville is bekend fan syn sekuere, wat ûnderkuolle skriuwstyl, Nabokovkaanske fernimstichheid, en foar de frijwat swarte koartswiligens fan syn oer it generaal skarlunige fertellers. Banville stribbet nei in proaza dat "de tichtens en tsjûkens fan poëzij hat".[1]
