Is anybody else here a fan of McCarthy or read any of his work? The first book of his I read was No Country For Old Men after being blown away by the movie. I read The Road next, before it was made into a movie, and it's now one of my top 5 books of all time. After that I read Blood Meridian (film version coming in 2011), a super violent nihilistic old west epic and it was very difficult to read (it's been described as having "neo-biblical" prose) but it had some of the most beautifully written passages of any book I've read. Just wondering if anyone else thinks he is one of the best living American novelists.
