The Road and O!? Really?

Wow. Oprah's announcement today may have been missed by indie booksellers, but it was impossible to not see the paperback copies of Cormac McCarthy's The Road with the highly-recognizable sticker stuck on the front cover. We were joking today that when the housewives come in to pick up the book, be sure to suggest they also purchase a copy of Blood Meridian. Yes, we can be evil. But seriously folks, as incongruous as it might seem for these two names to be connected in perpetuity, the attention that will be brought McCarthy as a literary master is priceless.

My 10/3/06 review of The Road
