Blood Meridian, by Cormac McCarthy

Categorized in:

Blood Meridian

As interesting a study in genre as I can recall. If anyone else wrote this bludgeoning, gore-soaked novel, it would be horror, but the name on the cover makes it literature. Some of the violence is hard to take, but the language is amazing. Echoes of McCarthy in Brian Evenson’s Old West.
