"Shall We Gather At The River" tells the story of Enoch O'Reilly, the great flood that afflicts his small town, and the rash of mysterious suicides that accompany it. Charlatan, Presleyite and local radiovangelist, O'Reilly is a man haunted by the childhood ghosts of his father's sinister radio set ...a false prophet destined for a terrible consummation with that old, evil river. A suicide mystery and a rich patchwork narrative of legend, myth, occult inheritance, eco-conspiracy, viral obsession, airwaves, water and death, "Shall We Gather At The River" is a spellbinding piece of work, marked by prose that is by turns haunting, poetic and blackly humourous. With shades of "Flannery O'Connor's Wise Blood", Jeffrey Eugenides' "The Virgin Suicides", of "Twin Peaks" and "Wisconsin Death Trip", "Shall We Gather At The River" is a novel that will further cement Murphy's reputation as one of the most original and exciting novelists to emerge in recent years.
