Old Adam Godley, a theoretical mathematician famous for his world-altering discoveries about the infinities, appears to be dying in the Sky Room atop his rambling manor, yet he is preternaturally attuned to the skirmishes erupting below….intricate musings over the complexities of consciousness and the cosmos, Banville creates a bewitching world in which to ponder what it is to be human."
