In Cormac McCarthy’s The Road a father and son travel through a post-apocalyptic world in a novel of “stunning, savage beauty… written with stripped-down urgency and fueled by the force of a universal nightmare. This is an exquisitely bleak incantation—pure poetic brimstone” (New York Times). “The Road is a wildly powerful and disturbing book” (Time). The Road earned McCarthy the 2007 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and became the basis for the 2009 film starring Viggo Mortensen and Charlize Theron.
