Join us to celebrate the launch of Mike McCormack’s new novel, with a reading, signing and glass of wine at Hodges Figgis.
This Plague of Souls is Mike’s first novel since his Goldsmiths Prize-winning critically acclaimed Booker-longlisted novel Solar Bones. He describes it as ‘part metaphysical thriller, part roman noir’. The story follows a man named Nealon, recently released from jail, who returns to his family home in the West of Ireland only to find an empty house. It seems the world has forgotten that he even existed. The one exception is a persistent caller on the telephone, someone who seems to know everything about Nealon’s life, his confusing bother with the law and, more importantly, what has happened to his family. All Nealon needs to do is talk with the stranger.
Mike McCormack is simply one of the greatest writers working today. We can’t wait for readers to connect with This Plague of Souls – if you loved Solar Bones, you’ll love Mike’s latest masterpiece.
