A beautiful copy of this National Book Award and Pulitzer Prize Winning work by Cormac McCarthy. All first edition points present. "The Road" is the profoundly moving story of a journey. It boldly imagines a future in which no hope remains, but in which the father and his son, "each the other's world entire," are sustained by love. Awesome in the totality of its vision, it is an unflinching meditation on the worst and the best that we are capable of: ultimate destructiveness, desperate tenacity, and the tenderness that keeps two people alive in the face of total devastation.

McCarthy allowed the Ecco Press to publish this play as thanks for their having kept his books in print over a number of years. View More...

The first systematic review of an "important but little-studied southern writer." This study covers McCarthy's early works through, and including, Blood Meridian. A lucid, penetrating, and much-needed study of one of contemporary American literature's most important novelists. Vereen Bell shows how McCarthy transforms the world through language, how he reconstitutes both urban and rural settings so that otherwise barely articulate and unheroic people live vividly in a context that is both modernist and antimodernist.
