Adventures in reading Cormac McCarthy /

Peter Josyph.

Book Cover
Main Author: Josyph, Peter.
Vernacular: ""Peter Joseph's articles on McCarthy are written in a style that is fluent, erudite, engaging, and imbued with a sophisticated sense of irony and good humor; indeed, they are as hybrid in nature as the work of the writer he is critiquing."-Christopher J. Walsh, In the Wake of the Sun: Navigating the Southern Works of Cormac McCarthy" "Regarded by many as one of America's finest living writers, Cormac McCarthy has produced some of the most compelling novels of the last forty years. Through the increasing number of cinematic adaptations of his work, including the Oscar-winning No Country for Old Men, and a Pulitzer Prize for The Road, McCarthy is entering the mainstream of cultural consciousness, both in the United States and abroad." "In Adventures in Reading Cormac McCarthy, Peter Joseph considers, at length, the author's two masterwork┘╝sBlood Meridian and Suttree-well as the novel and film of All the Pretty Horses, the play The Stonemason, and the film The Gardener's Son. This book also includes extended conversations with critics Harold Bloom and Rick Wallach about Blood Meridian, novelist and poet Robert Morgan about The Gardener's Son, and Oscar-winning screenwriter Ted Tally about his film adaptation of All the Pretty Horses." "Drawing on multiple, unconventional resources, this book examines McCarthy's work from original and sometimes provocative perspectives. Proposing a new notion of criticism, Adventures in Reading Cormac McCarthy, will be a useful tool for critics, students, and general readers about one of today's great literary talents."--BOOK JACKET.
