As you may have guessed from my sig file, I'm quite partial to a bit of Cormac McCarthy. Blood Meridian is, without a doubt, simultaneously the most brutal and the most beautifully-written book I have ever read. The Road, which seems to have enabled him to make the crossover into the land of big sales, is utterly heartbreaking, and the Border Trilogy contains one passage which makes me cry every time I read it.

I'm going to see No Country For Old Men today, having also loved THAT book, and my hopes are high.

Is anyone else here a fan?
