An End to Flight

A novel by

Originally published in 1973, this winner of the Robert Pitman Prize for Fiction is now in paper. Vincent Banville's novel powerfully recreates the horror of the Biafran War in Nigeria as it involves Michael Painter, an Irishman teaching in a Catholic Mission School, who stays behind to make a gesture against his own mental paralysis.


Praise for this book

"Sharply etched... novels as good as this one are necessary to remind us that life is not all soft-soap and panel games." - William Trevor
