Ancient Light

A story of obsessive young love and the power of grief, �Ancient Light� is the best novel yet from the Booker Prize winner of �The Sea�. �Billy Gray was my best friend and I fell in love with his mother.� Alexander Cleave, an actor who thinks his best days are behind him, remembers his first unlikely affair as a teenage boy in a small town in 1950s Ireland: the illicit meetings in a rundown cottage outside town; assignations in the back of his lover�s car on sunny mornings and rain-soaked afternoons. And with these early memories comes something sharper and much darker � the more recent recollection of the actor�s own daughter�s suicide ten years before.
