I picked this up on vacation in San Francisco and read it while driving around the state. What a magnificent book. I've read some of the source material too, and am just as impressed by McCarthy's research as I am by his prose. What an astounding book. I wish I could find something else like it.

************ I knew that it was based on a true event, but I haven't read a lot of the details of it. After reading BLOOD MERIDIAN was the last time I immediately went out and bought every other book the author wrote.
 I'm slowly doling out a book at a time. CHILD OF GOD isn't nearly as spectacular as BLOOD MERIDIAN. They both deal with the relationship between man and violence, but CHILD OF GOD is on a more personal basis. In theme and locale CHILD OF GOD qualifies as Southern gothic. SUTTREE, another Southern gothic, is going down to Key West with me as a commemoration of my first intro to McCarthy. I'm looking forward to it. After that I've still got the Texas trilogy.
