Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

The fulfilled renown of Moby-Dick and of As I Lay Dying is augmented by Blood Meridian, since Cormac McCarthy is the worthy disciple both of Melville and Faulkner, writes esteemed literary scholar Harold Bloom in his Introduction to the Modern Library edition. I venture that no other living American novelist, not even Pynchon, has given us a book as strong and memorable.
Cormac McCarthy's masterwork, Blood Meridian, chronicles the brutal world of the Texas-Mexico borderlands in the mid-nineteenth century. Its wounded hero, the teenage Kid, must confront the extraordinary violence of the Glanton gang, a murderous cadre on an official mission to scalp Indians and sell those scalps. Loosely based on fact, the novel represents a genius vision of the historical West, one so fiercely realized that since its initial publication in 1985 the canon of American literature has welcomed Blood Meridian to its shelf.
A classic American novel of regeneration through violence, declares Michael Herr. McCarthy can only be compared to our greatest writers.

   Review of Blood Meridian
First Cormac McCarthy book I’ve read. Great read and an honest/compelling narrative of the old west bringing conflict between Mexican, Indian and Settlers from the east into focus. Have ordered Road and Pretty Horses to read next. Very good author with honest description of the time to make grit and determination of those venturing west come alive.
