"Cormac McCarthy has said, in interviews, that there is ‘no such thing as life without bloodshed,’ and that the novelist’s proper occupation is with death. His work gives eloquent witness to this vision McCarthy is a colossally gifted writer" (The New Yorker). Basis for the Coen brothers' 2007 film with Tommy Lee Jones, Josh Brolin, and Javier Bardem that won four Oscars, including Best Picture.
