Product description

Review

"A wry, melancholy, beautiful first novel." (Guardian)

"This is the most surreal slab of realism you will read all year. Unique and rather wonderful." (Arena)

"Sherrill is a beautiful writer . . . he finds the drama to keep you reading, your heart in your mouth, to the conclusion's defiant roar of hope." (Daily Telegraph)

"Exceptional . . .Steven Sherrill uses M as the vehicle for a finely observed and compassionate portrayal of humanity in all its guises." (Irish Independent)

"Sherrill's narrative, with its dreamlike pace, shows myth coexisting with reality as naturally as it does in ancient epic." (Publisher's Weekly)

From the Inside Flap

Five thousand years out of the labyrinth, the Minotaur finds himself in the American South, living in a trailer park and working as a line cook at a steakhouse. No longer a devourer of human flesh, the Minotaur is a socially inept, lonely creature with very human needs. But over a two-week period, as his life dissolves into chaos, this broken and alienated immortal awakens to the possibility for happiness and to the capacity for love. --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.
