The Road

by Cormac McCarthy - £8.99  Picador (2007)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780330513005 | ISBN 10: 0330513001

The searing, post-apocalyptic novel that has instantly established itself as a modern masterpiece. 2007 winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. A father and his son walk alone through burned America, heading through the ravaged landscape to the coast. This is the profoundly moving story of their journey. The Road boldly imagines a future in which no hope remains, but in which two people, ‘each the other’s world entire’, are sustained by love. Awesome in the totality of its vision, it is an unflinching meditation on the worst and the best that we are capable of: ultimate destructiveness, desperate tenacity, and the tenderness that keeps two people alive in the face of total devastation. "The first great masterpiece of the globally warmed generation. Here is an American classic which, at a stroke, makes McCarthy a contender for the Nobel Prize for Literature . . . An absolutely wonderful book that people will be reading for generations" (Andrew O’Hagan)
