"On All Souls Day, the late Marcus Conway returns home. Solar Bones captures in a single relentless sentence the life and death of this rural Irish engineer, and his place in the globally interconnected 21st century. The book takes in local municipal failures and global financial collapse, the quotidian pleasures of family, ancient history and the latest headlines, the living and the dead. A vital, tender, acerbic, warm, and death-haunted work one of Ireland's most important contemporary novelists, Solar Bones builds its own style and language one broken line at a time. The result is visionary accounting of the now"-- Provided by publisher.

Longlisted for the Mann Booker prize, another fabulous Irish writer "erasing the line between the expternal, concrete world and the interior world of thought and feeling, memory and soul". That is was not shortlisted can only be explained by the British antipathy toward the Irish.
