“McCarthy, author of three previous novels, including the Man Booker Prize finalist C. (2010) and the manic Men in Space (2012), tightens up his offbeat style in his slimmest novel to date….This latest strange, smart narrative experiment showcases McCarthy’s gift for wildly original fiction.”
“A dizzying take on possible conspiracies, corporate philosophies and one man’s idle thoughts…. As the crossed-out subtitles on the cover—including “An Essay” and “A Treatise”—suggest, this is a malleable work, one where dreams of unreal cities carry as much weight as impressions of real ones and where a long discussion of the way Starbucks operates in Seattle may be a key image or a complete digression. There are moments of devastation here, and the way McCarthy reveals them are among the novel’s highlights….the effort to follow its surprising routes pays off. ”
Publishers Weekly
“McCarthy’s newest novel is as delightfully unclassifiable as his last effort, C….This novel of ideas is begging to be read and reread for meaning with pens, diagrams, and maybe even a dossier or two thrown in for good measure.”
