Time Pieces is a beautiful telling of an old man's relationship to a city he met when life seemed quite new. The mundane glories--the evening's life upon brick, the wit of old storytellers--were miraculous to the boy, bathetic to the young man, and now treasured by the old author who strives to rediscover childlike wonder. More than just a memoir, it is a plaintive reflection on time. What is the past? Banville writes, "If the present is where we live, the past is where we dream."
