C by Tom McCarthy( Book )
39 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 1,871 libraries worldwide
"Opening in England at the turn of the twentieth century, C is the story of a boy named Serge Carrefax, whose father spends his time experimenting with wireless communication while running a school for deaf children. Serge grows up amid the noise and silence with his brilliant but troubled older sister, Sophie: an intense sibling relationship that stays with him as he heads off into an equally troubled larger world. After a fling with a nurse at a Bohemian spa, Serge serves in World War I as a radio operator for reconnaissance planes. When his plane is shot down, Serge is taken to a German prison camp, from which he escapes. Back in London, he's recruited for a mission to Cairo on behalf of the shadowy Empire Wireless Chain. All of which eventually carries Serge to a fitful, and perhaps fateful, climax at the bottom of an Egyptian tomb ..."--Jacket

"A man is severely injured in a mysterious accident, receives an outrageous sum in legal compensation, and has no idea what to do with it. Then, one night, an ordinary sight sets off a series of bizarre visions he can't quite place." "How he goes about bringing his visions to life - and what happens afterward - makes for one of the most riveting, complex, and unusual novels in recent memory." "Remainder is about the secret world each of us harbors within, and what might happen if we were granted the power to make it real."--Jacket

Tintin and the secret of literature by Tom McCarthy( Book )
12 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 336 libraries worldwide
Herge's Tintin cartoon adventures have been translated into more than 50 languages and read by tens of millions of children ages, as their publishers like to say "from 7 to 77." Arguing that their characters are as strong and their plots as complex as any dreamt up by the great novelists, the author asks a simple question: Is Tintin literature? Taking a cue from Tintin himself, who spends much of his time tracking down illicit radio signals, entering crypts, and decoding puzzles, this work suggests that readers also need to tune in and decode in order to capture what's going on in the work. What emerges is a remarkable story of hushed up royal descent, in both Herge's work and his own family history. the author shows how the themes this story generates: expulsion from home, violation of the sacred, the host guest relationship turned sour, and anxieties around questions of forgery and fakeness, are the same that have fueled and troubled writers from the classical era to the present day. His startling conclusion is that Tintin's ultimate secret is that of literature itself

Traumatised by an accident which involves something falling from the sky and leaving him eight and a half million pounds richer, our hero spends his time and money obsessively reconstructing and re-enacting memories and situations from his past: a large building with piano music in the distance, the familiar smells and sounds of liver frying and spluttering, lethargic cats lounging on roofs until they tumble off them ... But, when this fails to quench his thirst for authenticity, he starts reconstructing more and more violent events, including hold-ups and shoot-outs

The mattering of matter : documents from the archive of the International Necronautical Society ( Book )
2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 31 libraries worldwide
"On August 7, 1999, Tom McCarthy founded the International Necronautical Society (INS) with a public presentation of the 'Founding Manifesto,' a touchstone that would inform the organization's proceedings for years to come. Composed of official committee members and illicit 'agents,' the INS harks back to early twentieth-century avant-gardes, producing declarations, reports, public hearings, broadcasts, and research documents, as well as orchestrating more covert media infiltrations, all governed by the objective, set out in the 'Founding Manifesto,' of mapping, entering, and occupying the space of death through literature, philosophy, culture, and technology. The Mattering of Matter is a collection of INS documents produced between 1999 and 2010. This edited selection of texts reflects the INS's development, through both internal bureaucratic changes and its ever-growing repertoire of references, all of which work towards their ultimate goal of constructing a necronautical 'craft' with which to propound and escalate the overall INS project."--Publisher's website, Dec. 5, 2012

Tom McCarthy schildert mit faszinierender Präzision die grosse Ära, in der die Technologie das Licht der Welt erblickt, ihre Obsessionen, Ängste und Wahrheiten. Dies ist ein kühner Roman, von einem absoluten Kunstwillen getragen, der unsere globalisierte, hochtechnisierte Gegenwart widerhallen lässt. Tom McCarthy, Jahrgang 1969, studierte Englisch in Oxford und lebt heute als Künstler und Schriftsteller in London. Er hat Erzählungen, Essays und Artikel über Literatur, Philosophie und Kunst veröffentlicht. Ausserdem ist er Generalsekretär der International Necronautical Society (INS), einem semifiktiven Avantgarde-Netzwerk. Sein Erstling, '8 1/2 Millionen' (dt. 2009 ), wurde in der englischsprachigen Welt zum Bestseller, erhielt den Believer Book Award und wird zurzeit verfilmt.
