About J. G. Farrell

J.G.Farrell (1935 1979) was born with a caul, long considered a sign of good fortune. Academically and athletically gifted, Farrell grew up in England and Ireland. In 1956, during his first term at Oxford, he suffered what seemed a minor injury on the rugby pitch. Within days, however, he was diagnosed with polio, which nearly killed him and left him permanently weakened. Farrell s early novels, which include"The Lung"and"A Girl in the Head, "have been overshadowed by his Empire Trilogy "Troubles," the Booker Prize winning"Siege of Krishnapur, "and"The Singapore Grip"(all three are published byNYRBClassics). In early 1979, Farrell bought a farmhouse in Bantry Bay on the Irish coast. I ve been trying to write, he admitted, but there are so many competing interests ?the prime one at the moment is fishing off the rocks . Then a colony of bees has come to live above my back door and I m thinking of turning them into my feudal retainers. On August 11, Farrell was hit by a wave while fishing and was washed out to sea. His body was found a month later. A biography ofJ.G.Farrell, J."G. Farrell: The Making of a Writer"by Lavinia Greacen, was published by Bloomsbury in1999. John Banville was born in Wexford, Ireland, in 1945. He is the author of many novels, including"The Book of Evidence," "The Untouchable," and"Eclipse." Banville s novel"The Sea"was awarded the 2005 Man Booker Prize. On occasion he writes under the pen name Benjamin Black."
