RARA-AVIS: man, this is NOIR!!!

The Road, by Cormac McCarthy (Knopf, Sept.). A man and his son survive a nuclear holocaust only to face a cruel, unforgiving world.

Other upcoming books that might look good:

The Meaning of Night, by Michael Cox (Norton, Sept.). The story of a Victorian Londoner who values books, prizes erudition and loves to kill.

Fear of the Dark, by Walter Mosley (LB, Sept.). A third foray for Fearless Jones and his stalwart pal, L.A. bookseller Paris Minton.

Echo Park, by Michael Connelly (LB, Oct.). A serial killer turns himself in, and Detective Harry Bosch finds he might have saved nine lives -- if he hadn't botched the first investigation.

Best wishes all...
