Summary

The first novel from the author of Booker-listed Solar Bones, Crowe’s Requiem is a dark fable that cementedMike McCormack’s position as a stunning new voice in world literature.

McCormack’s myth-tinged debut novel gives us the unforgettable Crowe and his endlessly curious and self-mythologizing stories. Crowe is born in the remote village of Furnace in the West of Ireland and raised by his grandfather, a man of “madness and bullying love,” who teaches him grim lessons about existence. Entirely silent until his third birthday, Crowe becomes an observant and isolated teenager, eventually leaving Furnace for a “wrong-footed” and bewildering city. There he meets a woman who will change his life and outlook, and also finds himself diagnosed with a rare and fatal aging disease. A profound, philosophical, and darkly funny meditation on childhood and the nature of life and death, Crowe’s Requiem challenges us with the power of stories to capture the pains, wonders, and mysteries of being a person in a “wrong world.”
