London: A single sentence can mean different things and while people do write sentences long enough to be paragraphs, author Mike McCormack decided to break convention and push the limits by writing an entire novel in just a single sentence.

The innovative novel has been awarded an Rs 86000 prize as it has been praised for a beautiful narrative that unfolds in just one unbroken sentence. The novel isn’t just unconventional, but also makes for a compelling read.

 

The novel, set in a single day, is titled ‘Solar Bones’ tells the story of an Irish engineer who comes back to life on All Soul’s Day. It covers diverse issues including marriage and politics, all in just one big sentence.

McCormack, who’s also the third Irish National to win the Goldsmith’s Prize, said that readership is up for experimental works and called on publishers to support such writers.
