  • In its conceptual magnitude, its sustainedly dazzling prose... The Making of Incarnation feels utterly original, utterly new, utterly magical; a visitor from the future. Tom McCarthy, the most visionary of contemporary writers, is light years ahead of anyone writing anywhere currently.

  • A typically ambitious mille-feuille of modernity, symbolism and myth.

    Katy Guest, Guardian
  • One of the most brilliantly intellectual novelists of the moment... The Making of Incarnation is like a ghostwritten hybrid of a John le Carré thriller, the post-modern philosophy of Jacques Derrida and a sci-fi romp all at the same time... There is something uplifting about McCarthy's work. He makes you think, and he makes you think things you hadn't thought before.

    Stuart Kelly, Scotland on Sunday
  • Hugely interesting, energetic, wise and well written.

    Sam Leith, GQ
  • Difficulty is...part of the pleasure of reading McCarthy... The Making of Incarnation is a novel of motion rather than emotion; imagine an even chillier JG Ballard... a rich and fascinating exercise in observation
