Cormac McCarthy

Guest Author - M. E. Wood

Cormac McCarthy is the author of ten novels. Some of his works include: All the Pretty Horses (1992), The Crossing (1994), Cities of the Plain (1998), No Country for Old Men (2005), and The Road (2006). He won the National Book Award for All the Pretty Horses in 1992 and The Road was chosen this Spring by Oprah Winfrey as her 57th Book Club Pick. The novel was moderately successful before Oprah. It's sure to be sent into all-time-favourite status because of her recommendation.

The Road is a post-apocalyptic novel about the journey of an American man and his son trying to make their way to the coast. Of course, they are fraught with misfortune, danger and their own psychological demons. It's a story about hope, love, devastation, and survival that is still relevant for our time and to many generations of readers.

If you want more information on this private author and his history steer clear of the publisher created site which has very little to offer other than a few hard to read blurbs from reviews. The best place to visit is The Official Website of The Cormac McCarthy Society. It is a non-profit organization with a yearly membership that was founded in October 1993 by a group of "scholars and interested lay readers of McCarthy's works". According to their website the purpose of the society is "to further the scholarship and general appreciation of Cormac McCarthy's writing and to facilitate the gathering of scholars and enthusiastic lay readers alike who share a common interest in Cormac McCarthy and his work."

The society has no personal connection to Cormac McCarthy but you'll find a wealth of information all in one spot like a full biography, reviews of his books, resources on translations, bibliographies, relevant links to other websites and special information for book collectors. There is a simple forum with current discussions about his works. A yearly journal called The Cormac McCarthy Journal which you can read online for free or receive in the mail when you purchase a membership. You don't have to join to have access to their website but if you decide you want more, membership dues are a reasonable $35 annually. Visit The Official Website of The Cormac McCarthy Society.
