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.
‘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 Enrigh
