Product description

Review

McCarthy distances us not only from the historical past, not only from our cowboy-and-Indian images of it, but also revisionist theories that make white men the villains and Indians the victims. All men are unremittingly bloodthirsty here, poised at a peak of violence, the "meridian" from which their civilization will quickly fall. ― New York Times Book Review

Blood Meridian is his masterpiece . . . An astonishing sanguinary epic dealing with the Indian wars of the 1840s in West Texas and Mexico . . . Unlike anything I have ever read in recent years, an extraordinary, breathtaking achievement. -- John Banville ― Observer

McCarthy's achievement is to establish a new mythology which is as potent and vivid as that of the movies, yet one which has absolutely the opposite effect . . . He is a great writer. ― Independent

A bloody and starkly beautiful tale -- Stephen Amidon ― Sunday Times

Possibly the greatest American novel of the past 25 years. -- Aleksandar Hemon, author of THE LAZARUS PROJECT and NOWHERE MAN

Unlike anything I have read in recent years, an extraordinary, breathtaking achievement. -- John Banville

I have rarely encountered anything as powerful, as unsettling, or as memorable as Blood Meridian . . . A nightmare odyssey. ― Evening Standard
