Product description


"Naeem Murr has a hideously beautiful imagination and a wholly original talent" (Mary Gaitskill)

"[Murr's] prose bursts into flower, taking us straight to the passionate heart of his characters. Words and phrases take on an almost translucent elasticity, stretching to encompass new ideas, giving scenes a compelling visual wholeness and suggesting real complexity" (Independent on Sunday)

"Clever and intense, Murr's writing captures the extraordinary power of human ties" (Time Out)

"The Genius of the Sea is not simply about a man in crisis, it is the story of each of us in our struggle to be intimate, to build faith, and to deserve love" (Akhil Sharma)

Book Description

'A masterly novel... A rich yet delicate tale, an ancient rime that holds us to the final page' - Glasgow Sunday Herald
