Description

God. Truth. Existence. From the legendary author Cormac McCarthy, Stella Maris is a masterful coda to The Passenger.

'It's an uncanny, unsettling dream, tuned into the static of the universe' – New York Times


A mathematician, twenty years-old, is admitted to the hospital. She has forty thousand dollars in a plastic bag, and one request. She does not want to talk about her brother.

Stella Maris is book two in a duology, preceded by The Passenger.

Praise for The Passenger:

'What a glorious sunset song . . . It’s rich and it’s strange, mercurial and melancholic' – Guardian

'The Passenger shows that McCarthy belongs in the company of Melville and Dostoevsky, writers the world will never cease to need' – New Statesman

Praise for Cormac McCarthy:

‘McCarthy worked close to some religious impulse, his books were terrifying and absolute’ – Anne Enright, author of The Green Road and The Wren, The Wren

'His prose takes on an almost biblical quality, hallucinatory in its effect and evangelical in its power' – Stephen King, author of The Shining and the Dark Tower series

'[I]n presenting the darker human impulses in his rich prose, [McCarthy] showed readers the necessity of facing up to existence' – Annie Proulx, author of Brokeback Mountain
