Cormac McCarthy is one of the USA’s most
important literary novelists.
The Road has been hailed by critics as a
masterpiece. The novel paints a bleak
vision of a post-apocalyptic America; a
land where no hope remains. A man and
his son walk alone towards the coast, and
this is the moving story of their journey.
The Road is an unflinching exploration of
human behaviour – from ultimate
destructiveness to extreme tenderness.
Cormac McCarthy has written ten novels,
including Blood Meridian and the Border
Trilogy series. He has previously won the
National Book Award and the National
Book Critics Circle Award.
