All the Pretty Horses by Cormac McCarthy

Posted by the editors on Tuesday, 27 September 2011

All the Pretty Horses (1992)(Novel) by Cormac McCarthy (Child of God (1973), Cities of the Plain (1998)The Road (2006))  All the Pretty Horses, a bestseller, U.S. National Book Award winner and U.S. National Book Critics Circle Award winner, is also the first book of McCarthy’s “Border Trilogy.”  A moving novel, All the Pretty Horses, offers us a slightly more “romantic” version of McCarthy’s exceptional rhythmic, almost Hemingway-esque prose (note the use of polysyndetic elements), with its poignant sensitivity to place, its penetrating look at the actions of man.  Easily worth reading more than once. (PR)

See our posts on other novels by Cormac McCarthy: The Orchard Keeper, Outer DarkBlood Meridian (or the Evening Redness in the West)

Also see our post on the Coen Brothers film ‘No Country for Old Men‘ based on Cormac McCarthy’s novel of the same name.

We recommend that you buy your books and DVDs.  Have a wonderful personal home film and book library..
