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.
About the Author
Tom McCarthy was born in 1969 and lives in London. He is known for the reports, manifestos, and media interventions he has made as General Secretary of the International Necronautical Society (INS), a semi-fictitious avant-garde network. Remainder is his first novel.
James Langton is a voice actor and audiobook narrator as well as a producer and orchestra leader. His 2004 debut audiobook recording, Lloyd Alexander's The Book of Three: The Prydain Chronicles, earned him the first of several Earphones Awards.
"McCarthy's evocation of the narrator's absorption in his fantasy world as it cascades out of control is brilliant." ---Publishers Weekly
