John Egan lives with his mother, father and grandmother in rural Ireland. The Guinness Book of Records is his favourite book and he wants to visit Niagara Falls with his mother. But, more than anything, John is determined to become a world-famous lie detector, almost at any cost.

This spell-binding novel, by the acclaimed author of How the Light Gets In , is about John s obsessive and dangerous desire to see the truth, even as his family is threatened in countless ways.

Carry Me Down is written in clean, compelling prose, and everything that John says and thinks and does seems terribly real. In M.J. Hyland s singular tale of disturbed love every word rings true. This powerful, simple and enthralling story announces her arrival as a great writer.

Interesting but not all that enjoyable a read. A unique if not dysfunctional family story.
