On All Souls Day, the spirit of Marcus Conway sits at his kitchen table and recalls, in flowing, relentless prose, his life in rural Ireland. A vital, tender, death-haunted work by one of Ireland's finest contemporary writers, Solar Bones celebrates the unexpected beauty of life and of language, and our inescapable nearness to our last end.
