Larry McMurtry “The eastern sky was red as coals in a forge, lighting up the flats along the river. Dew had wet the million needles of the chaparral, and when the rim of the sun edged over the horizon the chaparral seemed to be spotted with diamonds. A bush in the backyard was filled with little rainbows as the sun touched the dew… The sun spread reddish-gold light through the shining bushes, among which a few goats wandered, bleating. Even when the sun rose above the low bluffs to the south, a layer of light lingered for a bit at the level of the chaparral, as if independent of its source. The the sun lifted clear, like an immense coin. The dew quickly died, and the light that filled the bushes like red dirt dispersed, leaving clear, slightly bluish air.” (1) 1

Cormac McCarthy Set in the barren lands of Southwestern Texas, McCarthy’s novel about a drug exchange gone wrong and the man who found all of the money is dark, thrilling, and is, like most of his other novels, steeped in the language and mood of apocalypse. Though most know the story for the best-picture-winning adaptation of it by the Coen brothers, there is little that equals the sharpness and pace of McCarthy’s prose.(2)

This 2005 novel by Cormac McCarthy takes place along the Mexican-U.S. border in 1980. It follows the catastrophic chain of events that occur after a curious hunter stops to investigate an abandoned pickup truck that is surrounded by violently wounded dead bodies. In the back of the pickup truck, he finds $2 million and heroin—and takes it. (3)
