Sinopsis: Set in a Central Europe rapidly fragmenting after the fall of Communism, Men in Space follows a cast of dissolute Bohemians, political refugees, a football referee, a disorientated police agent and a stranded astronaut as they chase a stolen icon painting from Sofia to Prague and onwards. The icon s melancholy orbit is reflected in the various characters ellipses and near misses as they career vertiginously through all kinds of space: physical, political, emotional and metaphysical. What emerges is a vision of humanity adrift in history, and a world in a state of disintegration. Following the huge critical success of Remainder, McCarthy s first novel, Men in Space confirms him as one of the most original and promising voices in English fiction today.

Críticas: "A writer with ideas and talent." -- The Gaurdian

"McCarthy has a precision, a surreal logic and a sly wit that
is all is own." -- The Observer

"I, for one, am glad that the independent publishing house Alma Books is brave enough to back such idiosyncratic work." -- Alastair Sooke, DAILY TELEGRAPH

"Men in Space is a compelling and imaginative philosophical novel" -- FRIEZE MAGAZINE

"a confident and intelligent meditation on failed flights of transcendence." -- Toby Lichtg, TLS
