The Road

By McCarthy, Cormac




The Road is a 2006 novel by American writer Cormac McCarthy. It is a post-apocalyptic tale of a journey taken by a father and his young son over a period of several months, across a landscape blasted by an unnamed cataclysm that destroyed all civilization and, apparently, almost all life on earth. The novel was awarded the 2007 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and the James Tait Black Memorial Prize for Fiction in 2006.

New York City, NY: Alfred A. Knopf, 2006. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. Fine/Fine Dust Jacket.. New York City, NY: Alfred A. Knopf, 2006. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. First Edition/First Printing. 241 pages. Rare Cormac McCarthy collectible set. A fine copy of "The Road" with the Naxos Audiobook dramatic reading of the novel on four CD's by Rupert Degas. The author's tenth novel. One of Cormac McCarthy's finest achievements. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only that sold out shortly after publication. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Cormac McCarthy's "The Road". By enduring critical and popular consensus, the author's return to top form. "In our age of relentless saber-rattling by global powers, it is not much of a leap to feel his vision could be not far off the mark nor, sadly, right around the corner. Stealing across this horrific landscape are an unnamed man and his emaciated son. It is the love the father feels for his son, a love as deep and acute as his grief, that could surprise readers of McCarthy's previous work, as his Gnostic impressions of Mankind have left very little place for love. The final affirmation of hope in the novel's closing pages is all the more shocking, as the boy takes all of his father's rage at the hopeless folly of man and lays it down, lifting up, in its place, the oddest of all things: Faith" (Dennis Lehane). An absolute "must-have" title for Cormac McCarthy collectors. <B><i> This title is a contemporary classic. This is one of few copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. It comes with a fine copy of the Naxos Audiobook dramatic reading of the novel on four CD's by Rupert Degas, the acclaimed book reader of numerous literary classics. Please note: Copies available online are subsequent printings, have serious flaws, or are overpriced. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A rare set thus. </B></i> Cormac McCarthy's "Blood Meridian" is regarded by Harold Bloom as the greatest American novel of the last quarter of the 20th century. "Blood Meridian" and "The Border Trilogy" were selected by The New York Times panel of writers, critics, and editors as among the Top 20 greatest works of American fiction of the last 25 years. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Literature in 2007 for "The Road". One of the greatest American novelists of our time. A fine set. (SEE ALSO OTHER CORMAC MCCARTHY TITLES IN OUR CATALOG).

McCarthy, Cormac

New York: Alfred A. Knopf. Fine in Fine dust jacket. 2006. 1st Edition; 1st Printing. Hardcover. Pulitzer Prize winner. This book is in Fine condition and has a Fine dust jacket. This copy has the First State dust jacket with $24.00 price the front flap and 10/2006 on the bottom rear flap. The book and its contents are in clean, bright condition. The text pages are clean and bright. The dust jacket is crisp and clean. A novel of dystopian fiction, considered by some to be one of the best novels written in the last twenty-five years. "McCarthy is known for his sparse use of punctuation, even replacing most commas with "and" (a polysyndeton). He told Oprah Winfrey in an interview that he prefers "simple declarative sentences" and that he uses capital letters, periods, an occasional comma, a colon for setting off a list, but never semicolons. He does not use quotation marks for dialogue and believes there is no reason to "blot the page up with weird little marks". Erik Hage notes that McCarthy's dialogue also often lacks attribution, but that "[s]omehow...the reader remains oriented as to who is speaking". His attitude to punctuation dates to some editing work he did for a professor of English while he was enrolled at the University of Tennessee, when he stripped out much of the punctuation in the book being edited, which pleased the professor. McCarthy also edited fellow Santa Fe Institute Fellow W. Brian Arthur's influential article "Increasing Returns and the New World of Business", " .
