The first section of Crowe's Requiem is eerily reminiscent of Günter Grass's classic novel The Tin Drum. Something to Crowe About. com User, September 10, 2001. I bought this book two months ago in Ireland after hearing Mr. McCormack read. Even though I knew that the quality of writing would be remarkable from having heard passages from the novel, I avoided reading it because I thought it would be too dark, too depressing.

The novel Crowe’s Requiem followed two years later: a fantastical mashup of young love and doomy student alienation set in Galway which McCormack describes now as a magical realist kind of goth fairytale. I’m quite proud of that now: I’ve never heard of anyone else provoking a critic to lament the loss of trees. A decade later, the publishing scene in Ireland looked very different.

Irish writer McCormack’s first novel (after a story collection, Getting it in the Head, 1998) makes good use of his finely honed sense of the macabre, but this tale of a strange boy, raised by his even stranger grandfather, is unable to sustain the promise of its beginning. Breaking free of the old man's spell - drifting through the city hoping to complete his education - he embarks on a sudden, erotic affair with Marian, a young woman with a broken claim to divinity.

I was drawn into the story right from the start. Although it didn't follow on as I expected, becoming more of a gentle journey from boyhood to manhood than anything else, there were enough odd little touches and twists in the tale to keep me interested. It is set in Ireland, but could really be anywhere; the sense of loneliness and isolation is much more relevant than where the action takes place.

Crowe's Requiem is an eerie, dark, and otherworldly tale of a young man of uncertain origins and of his dreamlike but all-too-rapid transit through life. Rich in language and imagination, it is the work of an uncommonly talented young writer.
