Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungDrawing on multiple resources of an unconventional nature, this book examines some of McCarthy's most significant works, including Blood Meridian, Suttree, All the Pretty Horses, No Country for Old Men, and The Road.
PortraitPeter Josyph works concurrently as an author, painter, and photographer. His fiction, personal essays, criticism, and conversations have appeared in Southern Quarterly, The Bloomsbury Review, Library Journal, Twentieth Century Literature, Studies in Short Fiction, and The Cormac McCarthy Journal. He is the author of Liberty Street: Encounters at Ground Zero (2006).
PressestimmenPerhaps the next best thing to actually seeing Acting McCarthy...is to read Josyph's account of the film in Adventures in Reading Cormac McCarthy, complete with transcriptions, which is perhaps the main 'gift' this book offers. So of course the book is about 'Reading Cormac McCarthy' (beginning with two masterworks, Suttree and Blood Meridian), but it is also about understanding this Southern Gothic writer and about adapting his work to film.
