So good that it will devour you. It is incandescent. - Daily Telegraph
The Road is the astonishing post-apocalyptic novel by Cormac McCarthy, and winner of the Pulitzer Prize.
A father and his young son walk alone through burned America, heading slowly for the coast. Nothing moves in the ravaged landscape save the ash on the wind. They have nothing but a pistol to defend themselves against the men who stalk the road, the clothes they are wearing, a cart of scavenged food - and each other.

In The Press
One of the most shocking and harrowing but ultimately redemptive books I have read. It is an intensely intimate story. It is also a warning.
