Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A written nightmare you must read This book is dark and at times disturbing. Cormac Mccarthy is an expert at writing scenes so that the imagery comes alive in your head, and this book is no exception. The storyline is somewhat disjointed which adds to the eerie feeling this book will give you. I had trouble predicting what would happen next, which in my mind just shows how wonderfully creative Mccarthy is. Child of God will provide fuel for your nightmares.

About the Author

Cormac McCarthy was born in Rhode Island on July 20, 1933. He attended the University of Tennessee, but interrupted his studies for four years to join the U.S. Air Force. Although he has been publishing novels and receiving fellowships since 1965, his first best selling novel, "All the Pretty Horses" (winner of the National Book Award) came out in 1992. The book was the first part of the Border Trilogy, which also includes "The Crossing" and "Cities of the Plains." Cormac's earlier works include a play and a screenplay written for PBS.

From Our Editors

A taut, chilling novel that plumbs the depths of human degradation, this is the story of Lester Ballard--a violent, dispossessed man, falsely accused of rape--who haunts the hill country of East Tennessee when he is released from jail, preying on the population with his strange lusts. Out of print since 1984
