Spanning Genres

Irish novelist John Banville has written many critically acclaimed literary fiction novels, including the Booker Prize winner, The Sea. However, he is experiencing the largest readership of his career with his noir suspense novels written under the pen name, Benjamin Black.

Here is a link to an audio interview with Banville from NPR's Morning Edition where Banville discusses the pros and cons of genre labels.

I found his discussing of how long it takes him to write a "Banville" novel, versus the speed at which he puts out a "Black" novel quite interesting.
