One of the Most Compelling Reviews of Cormac McCarthy I've Ever Read

At Mookse and the Gripes, a wonderful review of Blood Meridian.

It's one of those books I'm always meaning to get to, but never seem to quite accomplish.  Perhaps I should move it up on my list.

  1. Steven, if I were to recommend half a dozen books written in the last twenty five years that everyone must read, McCarthy's BLOOD MERIDIAN would certainly be included in that limited list. So, what are you waiting for now? Read it! And then tell me what you think.

  2. Dear RT,

    I've started it several times and found it not to my taste--but I tend to be a very moody reader. So, how 'bout this--I'll pick up Blood Meridian when you pick up Ulysses! I know, you're embarking on Bleak House (another I need to revisit) shortly, but surely you can fit Ulysses into a gap somewhere in your book list?

    I will be picking up Blood Meridian soon--but I have several books of short stories I need to get through first--most importantly The Streams of Affection, but also Pastoralia and perhaps Wells Tower's opus d'annee.

    shalom,

    Steven

  3. Let me know when you begin BLOOD MERIDIAN. That will be my provocation to begin (and complete?) ULYSSES. Deal?
