Product Details


"An American classic to stand with the finest literary achievements of the century."–San Francisco Chronicle

"Grave and majestic…. McCarthy has created an imaginative oeuvre greater and deeper than any single book. Such writers wrestle with the gods themselves." —Washington Post Book World

"Showcases Mr. McCarthy’s gifts as an old-fashioned storyteller…. His most readable, emotionally engaging novel yet." —The New York Times

"Soars as few novels have in recent years…a work of which any writer would be proud." —The Philadelphia Inquirer

"If you love classic narrative, quest stories, adventure stories of high order transformed by one of the lapidary masters of contemporary American fiction, now is your hour of triumph."
Chicago Tribune

"Captures a way of life so unspoken and deep that most people never knew it existed–. [McCarthy] can go places in prose as remote as a mountain pass in a high wind."–The Boston Globe
