Will Eaves

Joint winner of the 2019 Republic of Consciousness Prize for small presses and winner of the 2019 Wellcome Prize, Will Eaves’ Murmur takes its inspiration from Alan Turing’s life in the aftermath of his conviction for homosexuality. Following its protagonist Alec Pryor through his treatment and subsequent therapy, Murmur offers a haunting, dreamlike meditation on the nature of consciousness and human connection. ‘Murmur opens your mind to a very different kind of novel, one that dares to forge a generous dialogue between arts and sciences, one that celebrates the wonder of human consciousness.’ The Times

In conversation with Catherine Taylor, critic, editor and writer.
