Praise for C
"[A tour de force . . . An intellectually provocative novel that unfurls like a brooding, phosphorescent dream."
—Jennifer Egan, New York Times Book Review (cover)
C is a bird so rare as to seem oxymoronic: an avant-garde epic, the first I can think of since Ulysses."—Jonathan Dee, Harper’s Magazine
"McCarthy is a talented and intelligent novelist . . . The near-Joycean scale and density of all this is truly impressive, as is McCarthy's ability to fold it into a cleanly constructed narrative, [which has] moments of humour and weird beauty."—The Guardian [UK]
“Tom McCarthy’s latest is terrifically stylish, acrobatic, and insidious.”
