For Norman Price, in the midst of his own crisis, the financial crisis was a distraction signifying there were no longer any essential truths, no longer a beginning, middle, or end to events; a realization that eclipsed, among other things, the passing of his parents.

Chicago, 2008. In the wake of cataclysmic events - both personal and international - Norman Price decides it's time for a new existence. But when a couple of bombshells are dropped onto his tentative new path, Norman's New Existence is suddenly threatened by past secrets.

Michael Collins takes post 9/11 America as the background for a deeply moving novel about the fragility of humanity.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'The prose carries the momentum of the novel. It is driven, virtuoso. The pace counterbalances the weight of the prose ... a formidable, demanding achievement' Irish Times.
'Collins's first novel for six years is an easy read, thanks to his seemingly effortless way with words' Daily Mail.
'Recalls some of the farce and faux noir of early Coen Brothers films' The Best New Fiction, Mail on Sunday.
'Contrasting current squalor with heroic origins, Collins' take on American culture is partly nostalgic, partly satirical, but always observant and knowledgeable' Sunday Times.
'An incredibly distinguished writer ... Collins has an extraordinary command of the English language. Some of the writing in The Death of All Things Seen is undeniably beautiful, and it's in these sections that this talent shines through' Irish Examiner.
