About the Author

Cormac McCarthy is one of the most enigmatic and reclusive superstars of the modern literary world. Living and writing from El Paso, Texas, he has shunned all requests for interviews, appearances at bookshops or literary festivals.Nonetheless, he remains one of the most admired writers of the last fifty years. His eight novels have received extraordinary reviews, being hailed as masterpieces of American literature. He has won the American National Book Award and the National Book Critics Circle Award for All the Pretty Horses, the first book of The Border Trilogy.Cormac McCarthy is the author of twelve novels and a play. All his novels are available in Picador editions. He died in June 2023.


In a lovely and terrible landscape of natural beauty and impending loss we find John Grady; a young cowboy of the old school, trusted by men and horses, and a fragile young woman, whose salvation becomes his obsession . . . McCarthy makes the sweeping plains a miracle.

Like the Western settings he captures to perfection, his work is both heart-wrenchingly beautiful and uncompromisingly brutal.

The completed trilogy emerges as a landmark in American literature
