The Road

August 25, 2007

I’ve just spent the night reading Cormac McCarthy’s novel, “The Road” and when I opened the window it was morning and the sun had risen and I was relieved. It isn’t what I expected it to be – I had heard about it and all of its terror and doom but what I found instead was a powerful poem of love of a father for a son and a son for his father and I don’t think I will ever forget it, that tenderness.
