'What joins men together, he said, is not the sharing of bread but the sharing of enemies.'—Review #191
I had just finished your excellent review and my son was emptying a bookshelf to take more of his books to his apartment. BLOOD MERIDIAN was in the middle and I mentioned your review.

Cormac McCarthy undoes me. His writing and storytelling are like no other but the darkness of his people and his stories haunt me. I guess that's a good thing.
