Summary

Writing in the New York Times Book Review of Mike McCormack's constraints he imposes on himself, let's just say that they serve as the rack on which he stretches his nightmares skintight".Much the same could be said of his debut novel. Crowe's Requiem is an eerie, dark, and otherworldly tale of a young man of uncertain origins and of his dreamlike but all-too-rapid transit through life. "Its pages teeming with all sorts of strange spirits and lost souls", wrote Ireland's Current Affairs Monthly, "it is a minor masterpiece . . . uncomfortable but also unforgettable". Rich in language and imagination, it is the work of an uncommonly talented young writer.
