Reviews

“The fulfilled renown of Moby-Dick and of As I Lay Dying is augmented by Blood Meridian, since Cormac McCarthy is the worthy disciple both of Melville and Faulkner. I venture that no other living American novelist, not even Pynchon, has given us a book as strong and memorable.”—Harold Bloom, from his Introduction

“McCarthy can only be compared with our greatest writers, with Melville and Faulkner, and this is his masterpiece.”—Michael Herr

“McCarthy employs a neo-Biblical rhetoric, a soaring, pulsing . . . always stirring diction without parallel in American writing today.”—Alan Cheuse, USA Today

“[Blood Meridian] reads like a connotation of The Inferno, The Iliad, and Moby-Dick. . . . An extraordinary, breathtaking achievement.”—John Banville, The Independent (London)

“McCarthy is a writer to be read, to be admired, and quite honestly—envied.”—Ralph Ellison

“McCarthy is a born narrator, and his writing has, line by line, the stab of actuality. He is here to stay.”—Robert Penn Warren
