'My friends tell me I must stop saying in public that I ‘hate all my novels’ What I mean is that I am profoundly dissatisfied with everything that I have done simply because it is not good enough by my standards. On the other hand I begin every new book in the complete conviction that this time I shall get it right'
John Banville 2010
