Drawing on diverse cultural forms, and ranging across disciplinary boundaries, Nation States maps the contested cultural terrain of Irish nationalism from the Act of Union of 1800 to the present. In looking at Irish nationalism as a site of struggle, Mays examines both the myriad ways in which the nation fashions itself as the a priori ground of identity, and those processes through which nationalism engenders an ostensibly unique national identity corresponding to one and only one nation-state, the place where we always have been, and can only ever be, 'at home.'

"It was half past five in the morning as I lurched through the front door of the B&B. Mrs. O'Sullivan appeared just in time to see me pause to admire the luminous Virgin holy water stand with integral night-light, and knock it off the wall. Politely declining the six rounds of ham sandwiches on the tray she was holding, I edged gingerly along the hallway to the wrong bedroom door and opened it." Despite the many exotic places Peter McCarthy has visited, he finds that nowhere else can match the particular magic of Ireland, his mother's homeland. In McCarthy's Bar, his journey begins in Cork and continues along the west coast to Donegal in the north. Traveling through spectacular landscapes, but at all times obeying the rule, "never pass a bar that has your name on it," he encounters McCarthy's bars up and down the land, meeting fascinating people before pleading to be let out at four o'clock in the morning. Through adventures with English hippies who have colonized a desolate mountain; roots-seeking, buffet-devouring American tourists; priests for whom the word "father" has a loaded meaning; enthusiastic Germans who "here since many years holidays are making;" and his fellow barefoot pilgrims on an island called Purgatory, Peter pursues the secrets of Ireland's global popularity and his own confused Irish-Anglo identity. Written by someone who is at once an insider and an outsider, McCarthy's Bar is a wonderfully funny and affectionate portrait of a rapidly changing country.

Ein an historische Ereignisse angelehnter Roman über die Indianerkriege und die amerikanische Expansion nach Westen, voller Gewalt und Grausamkeit; ein mythisches Weltuntergangsepos mit Bildern wie von Hieronymus Bosch. Hauptfigur ist ein vierzehnjähriger Junge, der 1850 nach Texas kommt und sich einer Bande marodierender Exsoldaten, Desperados und Abenteurer anschließt, die Komantschen, Apachen und friedliche Siedler abschlachten. «Das ist der Autor, an dem sich alle amerikanischen Autoren messen lassen müssen.» (The Guardian) «Der Roman ist großartig in seiner Sprachkraft und seinem Bilderreichtum, er ist grandios in seinen Landschaftsbeschreibungen, verstörend in seiner Darstellung nackter Gewalt.» (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung) «McCarthy erzählt so spannend wie Joseph Conrad und so elegant wie William Faulkner.» (Der Spiegel) «Ich beneide alle Leser, die ihre erste Erfahrung mit der Prosa dieses Autors noch vor sich haben; es ist eine Erfahrung, als habe man die Welt bislang durch Milchglas betrachtet. McCarthys Sprache klärt den Blick.» (Klaus Modick, Süddeutsche Zeitung) «Das erinnert mich an das Beste von Thomas Pynchon. (...) Das größte Buch seit Faulkners ‹Als ich im Sterben lag›.» (Harold Bloom)

Pete McCarthy established one cardinal rule of travel in his bestselling debut McCarthy's Bar: "Never pass a bar with your name on it." In this equally wry and insightful follow-up, Pete's characteristic good humor, curiosity, and thirst for adventure take him on a fantastic jaunt around the world in search of his Irish roots -- from Morocco, where he tracks down the unlikely chief of the McCarthy clan, to Rocky Sullivan's in New York, where he braves a crowd of stratospherically drunken Scotsmen in the midst of their St. Patrick's Day celebrations -- just before he is engulfed by a sea of green plastic bowler hats on Fifth Avenue. After clocking thousands of miles and landing in more than a few exotic locations, he finally reaches his coveted destination: a remote and sparsely populated Alaskan town (named McCarthy, of course) where the eighteen townspeople are far outnumbered by the bears. Risking life, limb, and liberty in an almost heroic effort to trace his own lineage, he also happens to discover the peculiar and fascinating history of McCarthys everywhere while managing to down a few good pints along the way. Packed with unexpected detours and dozens of hilarious moments, The Road to McCarthy is a quixotic and anything but typical Irish odyssey that confirms Pete McCarthy's status as one of the funniest and most incisive authors writing today.

"Ein glanzvolles Stück Literatur, das steht fest!" (The Sunday Times) U., der sich selbst »Firmenanthropologe« nennt, erhält den Auftrag, den Großen Bericht zu schreiben, ein universales ethnografisches Dokument, das unser gesamtes Zeitalter zusammenfasst. Doch schnell fühlt er sich überwältigt von der schieren Datenmenge und der augenscheinlichen Unmöglichkeit, das Vorgefundene in eine irgendwie geartete, sinnstiftende Erzählung zu übersetzen. Als er sich zu fragen beginnt, ob sein Vorhaben überhaupt gelingen kann, verändert ein Traum von einer apokalyptischen Stadtlandschaft, in deren Mitte eine gigantische Müllverbrennungsanlage thront, seine Wahrnehmung. Auf eine Art, wie nur er es kann, fängt Tom McCarthy ein, wie wir unsere Welt erleben, wie wir versuchen, ihr einen Sinn zuzusprechen und die Erzählung, die wir für unser Leben halten, zu erkennen. Ein beunruhigender Roman, der verspricht, das erste und letzte Wort über die Zeit zu formulieren, in der wir uns bewegen – sei sie modern, postmodern oder welches Label auch immer wir ihr geben wollen.
