    Here s an unusual encounter.I met Cormac McCarthy at the Oscars this year, and we had a very pleasant little chat This was an important moment for me not only because he is the author of Blood Meridian, No Country For Old Men and The Road, all books I worship, but also because McCarthy is famous for his almost Salinger like reclusive tendencies He does not do interviews nor does he show up on The Tonight Show He doesn t walk red carpets, tour colleges on the lecture circuit, or do any of the Here s an unusual encounter.I met Cormac McCarthy at the Oscars this year, and we had a very pleasant little chat This was an important moment for me not only because he is the author of Blood Meridian, No Country For Old Men and The Road, all books I worship, but also because McCarthy is famous for his almost Salinger like reclusive tendencies He does not do interviews nor does he show up on The Tonight Show He doesn t walk red carpets, tour colleges on the lecture circuit, or do any of the public events that come with being one of the nation s greatest prose stylists.He writes these remarkable, beautiful, elegiac tragedies, steeped in prose that at times become Biblical in their sweep and intensity Then he stays utterly quiet about them With few exceptions he did a New Yo...

    Cormac McCarthy has created again the perfect villain, this time in the form of a former special forces killer named Anton Chigurh Like Judge Holden and Glanton in Blood Meridian, or the Evening Redness in the West, Chigurh is intelligent, resourceful and utterly devoted to violence and chaos Yet, like the antagonists in Blood Meridian, McCarthy has imbued in Chigurh a strange integrity, a devotion to a natural order that I think is McCarthy s embodied illustration of evil a man cut off Cormac McCarthy has created again the perfect villain, this time in the form of a former special forces killer named Anton Chigurh Like Judge Holden and Glanton in Blood Meridian, or the Evening Redness in the West, Chigurh is intelligent, resourceful and utterly devoted to violence and chaos Yet, like the antagonists in Blood Meridian, McCarthy has imbued in Chigurh a strange integrity, a devotion to a natural order that I think is McCarthy s embodied illustration of evil a man cut off and separated from the love of man or God McCarthy s lean, muscular narrative style is in masterful form for this dialogue on good and evil, and like other McCarthy novels, he pays no mind to popular ideals of what a story should say or do McCarthy is the quintessential post modernist with his bold disregard for tradi...

    A taut thriller with crisp, naturalistic dialogue, this book refuses to avert its eyes from the darkness Perhaps I m rating this a bit low, but considering the author s reputation I expectedBesides, I liked the movie better.

    This is started as a one star book, then progressed to four slowly as the story unfolded The novel grows on you No Country for Old Men starts out in a thoroughly disjointed way Multiple POVs, total lack of punctuation, dialogue rendered exactly as the characters speak it the reader is utterly confused as to where the focus is, who the protagonist is, and what the story is about It could be about one Llewlyn Moss who stumbles upon a fortune while hunting antelope near the Rio Grande A tran This is started as a one star book, then progressed to four slowly as the story unfolded The novel grows on you No Country for Old Men start...
