Solar Bones by Mike McCormack

solar bonesComing highly recommended from Vinny, new in at Charlie Byrne’s is Mike McCormack’s fantastic new novel Solar Bones published by Tramp Press.

“The Angelus bell ringing out over its villages and townlands, over the fields and hills and bogs in between, six chimes of three across a minute and a half, a summons struck on the lip of the void.”

Marcus Conway is dead. But sometimes on All Souls’ Day, the dead return to us.

Set om the West of Ireland as the recession is about to strike, Solar Bones tells the story of one man’s experience as his world falls apart. A beautiful and haunting elegy, this novel of order and chaos, love and loss captures how minor decisions ripple into waves and test our integrity every day.

Wry, dark and funny, Solar Bones is an intimate portrayal of a family from one of the most daring and original writers working today.

Solar Bones is available in store for €15. Stay tuned to our website and social media for information on the Galway launch of Solar Bones, which will be taking place at Charlie Byrne’s.  For more information, or to reserve a copy, simply contact us.
