About This Item

New York City: Alfred A Knopf, 2006. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine/Near Fine. 8vo., 241pp. Beautiful unread 1st Printing, tight, solid and clean throughout. A tiny bit of wear/bumping to the spine ends but very minor. Equally attractive unclipped dust jacket, ($24.00), has some common rubbing streaks but still bright and fresh with no chipping, creases or tears. The author's highly acclaimed masterpiece, that won the 2007 National Book Award, Oprah Book Club Pick, and the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. A father and son walk alone through a dark, burned America, "each the other's world entire," and are sustained by love. Scarce in two-tone copper and black boards, with copper lettering. Later printings were black cloth boards. First state dustjacket with publishing date; 10/2006 on the bottom of the back flap. A very pretty collectable copy.

Synopsis

The Road is a 2006 novel by American writer Cormac McCarthy. It is a post-apocalyptic tale of a journey taken by a father and his young son over a period of several months, across a landscape blasted by an unnamed cataclysm that destroyed all civilization and, apparently, almost all life on earth. The novel was awarded the 2007 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and the James Tait Black Memorial Prize for Fiction in 2006.

It came unannounced, uninvited. Sent to me in a plain box, came a package with some typical care pack items, and one of the most outstanding books I've read in a long time, "The Road", by Cormac McCarthy. My sister sent it because she had heard it was well recieved. Well recieved is an understatement. "The Road" is not simply a book, it's an experience. A post-apocalyptic story of a man and his son, truding through the ashen country, towards the coast in hopes of finding some civilization. Some say "The Road" is just another masterpiece to add to his list of fantastic works. I'm not familiar with all of McCarthy's works, but I can attest that it is an incredibly short list in existence, displaying books that leave you changed for weeks after reading the book. I spoke to many who were not necessarily bold readers and even felt a bit disturbed for a while after finishing the book. For those of us who are bold readers, this is intriguing.
