John Banville Benjamin Black intends to entertain

Still determined, but not so small anymore, not after winning this year’s Man Booker Prize for The Sea, John Banville is to follow the path of many other high profile writers and will be writing a series of thrillers.. under the pseudonym Benjamin Black – not such a pseudonym now, however. Whether the first line of his next book will still be “Of all the things we gave them that they might be comforted, dawn is the one that works.” is currently unknown.
