Notes from a Coma

by Mike McCormack - £9.99  Canongate Books Ltd (2017)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781786891419 | ISBN 10: 1786891417

The critically acclaimed novel from the author of Solar Bones, winner of the 2016 Goldsmiths Prize and BGE Irish Book of the Year.
 
After suffering a catastrophic breakdown, J.J. O’Malley volunteers for a government project exploring the possibility of using coma as a means to keep prisoners under control. Floating in a maintained coma on a prison ship off the west coast of Ireland, his coma goes viral and the nation turns to watch.
 
Brilliantly imagined and artfully constructed - merging science fiction with an affectionate portrait of small town Ireland - Notes from a Coma is a compassionate examination of a man cursed with guilt and genius.
