C follows the short, intense life of Serge Carrefax, a man who - as his name suggests - surges into the electric modernity of the early twentieth century, transfixed by the technologies that will obliterate him.

Born to the sound of one of the very earliest experimental wireless stations, Serge finds himself steeped in a weird world of transmissions, whose very air seems filled with cryptic and poetic signals of all kinds. When personal loss strikes him in his adolescence, this world takes on a darker and more morbid aspect. What follows is a stunning tour de force in which the eerily idyllic settings of pre-war Europe give way to the exhilarating flight-paths of the frontline aeroplane radio operator, then the prison camps of Germany, the drug-fuelled London of the roaring twenties and, finally, the ancient tombs of Egypt.

Reminiscent of Bolaño, Beckett and Pynchon, this is a remarkable novel - a compelling, sophisticated and sublimely imaginative book uncovering the hidden codes and dark rhythms that sustain life.

Críticas: A supercharged, fizzingly written Bildungsroman...the remix the novel has been crying out for. (Robert Collins Sunday Times)

C is unquestionably brilliant...This is a genuinely exciting and spookily beautiful book, a new kind of joy. (Neel Mukherjee The Times)

Beautiful ... a thrilling tale. This is one of the most brilliant books to have hit the shelves this year, and McCarthy deserves high praise for an electric piece of writing which should be read and enjoyed as much as dissected and discussed. (Beth Jones Sunday Telegraph)

A dizzying, mesmeric and beautifully written work...Tom McCarthy has written a novel for our times: refreshingly different, intellectually acute and strikingly seems highly unlikely that anyone will publish a better novel this year. (Stuart Evers Daily Telegraph)

Spellbinding...[McCarthy's] ideas produce the electrifying, spooked ambience of a modernist symphony (Tim Robey Daily Telegraph)
