"this here man has had congress with a goat" etc. it's funny but soon after i drift away into sleep, then forgetfulness.

Good choice, if you like the literary western check out Deadwood by Pete Dexter, even better than the series and really not at all related.

Me too!

We should start a book club.


It's rare for me to thoroughly dislike a book, so way to go Cormac.

i know it's a great book and i should just persevere. when i move out of the fucking american southwest and don't feel like the book is happening just outside my window i probably will. it will be "exotic," and all. right now it's just like hearing my neighbors speak, just with a better vocabulary ha ha ha. oh...

What did you so thoroughly dislike about it?

Thanks! I've been considering whether to read that. Larry McMurtry's Lonesome Dove is another good one and again far better than the TV series.

Blimey! Maybe your local authority should capitalise by opening a Blood Meridian theme park for all us Europeans to come and buy our souvenir scalps and have our photo taken with 'the Judge'.

SPOILER REQUEST: Seriously, could someone PM the ending? Or tell me if the wikipedia synopsis is good enough?

I am in the minority with CM. He's generally regarded as one of America's greatest living writer. Yes, critics can be wrong. But I mean a significant number of writers and thinkers on literature who I respect and share similar tastes with starkly diverge with me when it comes to McCarthy. So maybe I'm wrong for being unable to finish any of the six books I've tried without skimming, skipping or giving up.

My beef with him is his characters are non-existent, his stories are boilerplate, his style makes me think of a guy who can't figure out if he wants to be Faulkner or Hemingway so he tries to marry the two. Ultimately I'm turned off by the relentless pessimism, only enlivened now and then by quaint, folksy voices (sheriff in No Country, family at end of Road, etc.). I think I'm supposed to (mostly) despair for humanity after reading his books, but I only despair for him.

oh, snap! i don't know if you are correct or not, but that there is a great criticism regardless of its target.

David Hickey is very interesting....


I have read a lot of Paglia foreverasskiss, and I find her very excellent reading. don;t agree with some of what she states, but who cares right? I like a well-stated opinion anyday.
