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.

The Heather Blazing (1992) (novel) by Colm Toibin.  Colm Toibin’s second novel, The Heather Blazing, offers, through a delicate and moving fabric of sensitively woven metaphors and descriptions of coastal village life in southern Ireland, a look at aging and impermanence and the touching and sad story of  the emotional distance between a man and all those he loves.

The English Patient

Posted by the editors on Friday, 11 March 2011

The English Patient, (1992), (novel), by Michael Ondaatje.  The novel The English Patient by the Canadian-Sri Lankan author Michael Ondaatje is a wonderful novel of sensuality and despair, of individual and global ethics permeated by a marvelous sense of delicate detail.  Winner of the Canadian Governor General’s Award and The Booker Prize, the novel was made into an eponymous award-winning film (9 Oscars, among other awards!) by Anthony Minghella with Ralph Fiennes, Kristin Scott Thomas, Willem Dafoe, Colin Firth, Juliette Binoche, and Naveen Andrews released in 1996 and still very much worth viewing. (PR)

See our posts on Michael Ondaatje’s novels Coming Through Slaughter and Divisadero.
