'Cormac McCarthy was such a virtuoso, his language was so rich and new . . . McCarthy worked close to some religious impulse, his books were terrifying and absolute. His sentences were astonishing.' - Anne Enright


'A drought-busting, brain-vexing double act' - Guardian

Alicia Western is the following: Twenty years old. A brilliant mathematician at the University of Chicago. And a paranoid schizophrenic who does not want to talk about her brother, Bobby.

Told entirely through the transcripts of Alicia's psychiatric sessions, Stella Maris is a searching, profoundly moving companion to The Passenger. It is a powerful enquiry that questions our notions of God, truth, and life itself by one of America's finest writers.

'Remarkable... a staggering achievement'
- Scotsman

'His sentences have the solidity of stones and the clarity of diamonds'
- Financial Times

'A true work of literature... If McCarthy's goal was for these books to haunt readers long after they are set aside, then he has succeeded.'
- LA Review of Books

'Remarkable... [Stella Maris] harmonises both sadly and gorgeously with its recent predecessor. Side by side, both novels affirm the extraordinary poetry and strangeness of McCarthy's vision'
- Sydney Morning Herald

'Like Bach's concertos, these triumphant novels depart the realm of art and encroach upon science, aimed at some Platonic point beyond our reckoning where all spheres converge'

'Great additions to McCarthy's already outstanding oeuvre and proof that the mind of one of our greatest living writers is as sharp as it has ever been.'
