Summary: Chas been shortlisted for the 2010 Man Booker Prize.


The acclaimed author ofRemainder,which Zadie Smith hailed as ''one of the great English novels of the past ten years,''gives us his most spectacularly inventive novel yet.

Opening in England at the turn of the twentieth century,Cis 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 . . .

Only a writer like Tom McCarthy could pull off a story with this effortless historical breadth, psychological insight, and postmodern originality.
