All the Pretty Horses by Cormac McCarthy
All the Pretty Horses

Whitney Peterson, January 19, 2012

McCarthy is one of the most brilliant writers of our time. His lush, lyrical language draws me, willing or not, further and further into his dark and dangerous vision of the world.

He humbly underrates himself, without being the least whiny, which makes him a vast improvement over so many of the recent crop of flawed protagonists.

My AP students are reading this now, and a whole new generation of McCarthy lovers is being born.
