The greatest Western of all time. If only Marlon Brando was still alive for the role of The Judge in Blood Meridian. The screenplay adaptation I read was wonderful. McCarthy writes the purtiest language in the whole wide world.
Totally. And as evocative as McCarthy's prose is, it's somehow unpretentious. There aren't many writers who can immerse me in a world I need a thesaurus to understand, but don't want to leave (Suttree, anyone?). (btw, Mike, halfway through Child-44 - book - and loving it)
