Laura MillerIf The Infinities has the bones of a novel of ideas, it's fleshed out and robed as a novel of sensibility and style. Its drapery is velvet and brocade—sumptuous and at times over-heavy. Banville is the sort of writer, drunk on Joyce, who wants to nail down every fleeting moment and sensation with some strenuously unprecedented combination of words…Fortunately, lavish demonstrations of literary virtuosity don't bog down The Infinities…Things, mostly farcical, happen at a regular clip.
—The New York Times Book Review
