Hay Player

John Banville and Jim Crace

Hay Festival 1997, 
A reading and conversation with these two celebrated novelists. Banville's "brilliantly wrought and compelling" The Untouchable, is a searing self-examination by a double-agent, not unlike Anthony Blunt who questions loyalties, his ideals and his faith. Crace's Quarantine is the story of the great self-examination of Christ and his five companions fasting in the Wilderness for forty days.
