A genuine UK first edition / first printing, with a number '1' on the copyright page. Trade paperback original, with flaps. Flat-signed by the author in black ink on the title page. Dated by the author 'May 2009', with no dedication. A highly-acclaimed novel, by the author of 'How the Light Gets In'. Ostensibly a story about a boy, John Egan, who has the ability to tell when people are lying, this is really an account of his attempts to make sense of an uncertain world and a family that's falling apart. Shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2006. This is an excellent copy. Not price-clipped. Crisp and white, with no marks of any kind. N° de ref. de la librería 000410
Sinopsis: John Egan is a misfit, 'a twelve-year old in the body of a grown man with the voice of a giant who insists on the ridiculous truth'. With an obsession for the "Guinness Book of Records" and faith in his ability to detect when adults are lying, John remains hopeful despite the unfortunate cards life deals him. During one year in John's life, from his voice breaking, through the breaking-up of his home life, to the near collapse of his sanity, we witness the gradual unsticking of John's mind, and the trouble that creates for him and his family. Set in early seventies Ireland, "Carry Me Down" is a deeply sympathetic take on one sad boyhood, told in gripping, and at times unsettling, prose. It plays out its tragic plot against a disarmingly familiar background and refuses to portray any of its lovingly drawn characters as easy heroes or villains.
