Russell Banks has written more than 10 novels including Continental Drift and Cloudsplitter, as well as the story collection The Angel on the Roof. His The Sweet Hereafter and Affliction were adapted into celebrated feature films. Banks’ latest novel, Lost Memory of Skin, tells the story of “the Kid,” who at 22, after doing time for a liaison with an underage girl, is forbidden to live where children might gather. Michael Ondaatje calls Banks, “the uncompromising moral voice of our time.”
Banks has made a life’s work of charting the causes and effects of the terrible things “normal” men can and will do. He writes with an intensely focused empathy and a compassionate sense of humor that help to keep readers, if not his characters, afloat through the misadventures and outright tragedies in his books.
