"America's Grim Prophet"

That is how CounterPunch's Carl E. Kandutsch, Ph.D., J.D. describes this novelist who "writes as if nothing in the literary world has happened since William Faulkner passed, or perhaps since Herman Melville completed Moby Dick" — Cormac McCarthy: the Latecomer.

Huzzah! Suffering from reader's block, I needed a good recommendation, and this is it. I confess to not having yer read this author first recommended to me in the '90s, but a month ago I watched The Road (2009), based on his novel, whose vision I found in line with my worldview.
