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.

The first great 21st-century Irish novel * * Irish Times * * Adventurous and ambitious -- Colm Toibin McCormack's language is lovely, lyrical . . . his humor is dark, macabre; the words glimmer like a spell * * Time Out * * McCormack's obsessions at times converge with those explored by Ian McEwan, Will Self and J. G.

Notes From a Coma establishes McCormack as one of the most original and important voices in contemporary Irish fiction * * Irish Times * *
