Murmur

by Will Eaves
£8.99   paperback  CB Editions (2018)

Murmur by Will Eaves Shortlisted for the 2018 Goldsmiths Prize
Longlisted for the 2019 Republic of Consciousness Prize
 
Taking its cue from the arrest and legally enforced chemical castration of the mathematician Alan Turing, Murmur is the account of a man who responds to intolerable physical and mental stress with love, honour and a rigorous, unsentimental curiosity about the ways in which we perceive ourselves and the world. Formally audacious, daring in its intellectual inquiry and unwaveringly humane, Will Eaves’s new novel is a rare achievement.
 
The opening section of Murmur was shortlisted for the 2017 BBC National Short Story Award.

"Murmur is a novel of multiple ideas, which seems right given its main protagonist, Alec Pryor, is loosely based on the predicament of the philosophical mathematician, Alan Turing. It is also a novel forged from an immensely beautiful writing intelligence. Murmur is a fully achieved literary experiment, digging deep into all the dimensions of human consciousness, including state sanctioned savagery"
