Product description

Mike McCormack's Solar Bones announces the return of an Irish author who has been too-long neglected. His experimental story, set against the backdrop of the looming financial crisis, is a haunting meditation on family and duty. The fractured narrative and striking dialogue are reminiscent of the work of Eimear McBride and Kevin Barry, while his descriptions of rural isolation, personal displacement and rising paranoia perfectly evoke the shock of Ireland's economic fall. Despite the novel’s challenging style and subject, McCormack’s story is both full of wit and extremely engaging. McCormack is a uniquely talented author, with a voice that is entirely his own. Solar Bones proves to be a complex yet absorbing examination of the post-Celtic Tiger period.
Recommended by Joanne O’Sullivan, Dubray Dun Laoghaire
