2007 Pulitzer Prize-Winners!

Book Cover Image: Title: The Road, Author: Cormac McCarthy Buy It Congratulations to Cormac McCarthy, who just won the Pulitzer Prize for fiction for The Road -- a fascinating literary journey about a man and a child making their way through a post-apocalyptic America.

From our editors: "Ask any literary critic -- and most discerning readers -- to name the greatest living American novelist, and Cormac McCarthy is sure to surface as a major contender. Best known for his powerful regional fiction (Sutree, the Border Trilogy, Blood Meridian, et al), this dazzling prose stylist crafts tragic, unforgettable stories suffused with violence, alienation, and an undeniably apocalyptic vision. Now, in what we consider McCarthy's best novel to date, the apocalypse itself becomes a set piece. Unfolding in a terrifying future where Armageddon has been waged and lost, The Road traces the odyssey of a father and his young son through a desolate landscape of devastation and danger. Powerful, moving, and extraordinary by any standard, this is McCarthy at his greatest and gravest."
