May I Recommend...

This is McCarthy at his most sparse and haunting. Emotionally charged, heart wrenching, gorgeous prose. Evokes images of desolation like nothing I've read before. Quick, gripping and powerful. Check it out.


  1. Read it quick before the movie comes out! Are you gonna see the movie, Eric? I'm nervous for it...

  2. Yes! I want to see it but I have a feeling it will not be that great based on the trailer. It would be hard to adapt a McCarthy novel as well as the Coen bro's did for No Country. Let's see it together Hen.

  3. yes, it might just be an adventure into misery. I was just reading the first few pages of All The Pretty Horses, and was quite bored. I put it down and slept.
