In the Nobel prizewinner's third novel, "Reality, recollection and imagination become blurred. . . . engaging [the reader] with profound theological issues of death, sin and judgment. . . . There is essentially only one character in the novel, Christopher "Pincher" Martin, a self-centred actor who has joined the navy in World War Two. . . . At the very end of the novel, the reader realizes that Martin is alone and dying on a rock in the middle of the Atlantic (possibly Rockall), and that most of the narrative is composed of his memories, intertwined with dreamlike fragments of his lonely quest to survive."
