Stella Maris – Cormac McCarthy


Alicia Western is twenty years old and a brilliant mathematician at the University of Chicago. She is also a paranoid schizophrenic who does not want to talk about her brother, Bobby.
Told entirely through the transcripts of Alicia’s psychiatric sessions, ‘Stella Maris’ is a searching, profoundly moving companion to ‘The Passenger’. It is a powerful enquiry that questions our notions of God, truth, and life itself by one of America’s finest writers.
