Samenvatting

Narrated in a single sentence, it is the winner of the Goldsmiths Prize 2016 and the 2016 Irish Book of the Year. Ambitious and other-worldy, this profound elegy is a story of love, chaos and loss as it reflects on All Souls' Day - a day in Ireland where it is thought the dead may return. Doing just that, Michael Conway returns to his kitchen table and attempts to piece together the events which took him away before bringing him back home again

Recensie(s)

Excellence is always rare and often unexpected: we don't necessarily expect masterpieces even from the great. Mike McCormack's Solar Bones is exceptional indeed: an extraordinary novel by a writer not yet famous but surely destined to be acclaimed by anyone who believes that the novel is not dead * * Guardian * * Pure enchantment from an otherworldly talent. I admired the hell out of this book -- ELEANOR CATTON, Man Booker Prize-winning author of THE LUMINARIES Wonderfully original, distinctly contemporary . . . delivered in lucid, lyrical prose . . . A pleasure to read * * New York Times * * McCormack has always been among the most adventurous and ambitious Irish writers. Solar Bones, written in one single sonorous sentence, tells the story of a family in contemporary Ireland -- COLM TOIBIN The writing catches fire as we draw near to the void, pass over into death itself, and therein confront the truth that even in a fallen universe, when all distractions tumble away, the only adequate response to our being is astonishment * * Irish Times * * Exhilarating -- LISA McINERNEY Hauntingly sad, but also frequently very funny - Proust reconfigured by Flann O'Brien -- Literary Review Beautiful . . . Compulsive * * The Times * * This is prose that reads as if it is being thought . . . reduced me to tears * * New Statesman * * A masterpiece -- Blake Morrison With stylistic gusto, and in rare, spare, precise and poetic prose, Mike McCormack gets to the music of what is happening all around us. One of the best novels of the year -- COLUM McCANN On every page, a celebration of the everyday, the odd, the incidental -- SARA BAUME McCormack is one of our bravest and most innovative writers - he shoots for the stars with this one and does not fall short -- KEVIN BARRY
