For a couple of months now, I have been wanting to read The Road by Cormac McCarthy. It is a post-apocolyptic tragedy type of tale that follows a father and his son as they journey through the ashes of what use to be the United States. I actually have a copy of the book to give away here on the blog at some point, but first I think I will read it and then maybe write a review or something.
"His tale of survival and the miracle of goodness only adds to McCarthy's stature as a living master. It's gripping, frightening and, ultimately, beautiful. It might very well be the best book of the year, period."

Here is a video of Oprah interviewing Cormac McCarthy.
P.S. I think it is hilarious when she asks him if he is passionate about writing!
