    This does not have SC's structural genius, however. I've been able to see some of the effects of the wave of Eastern European mostly Polish immigration here in Scotland over the past couple years. But what propels The Road far beyond its progenitors are the diverted poetic heights of McCarthy's late-English prose; the simple declamation and plainsong of his rendered dialect, as perfect as early Hemingway; and the adamantine surety and utter aptness of every chiselled description. The boy brings his father water, and the man sees a light surrounding the boy.

    They're on the walls. While we can. She was forced to flee once more due to the Great Fire of Smyrnawhen Greek and Armenian refugees were crammed into the waterfront of the city and forced into the sea. McCarthy also chooses to use no quotation marks in dialogue and for some contractions, he leaves out the apostrophes.

    He recalls that he also left behind his only picture of his wife, and ponders whether he could have convinced her to stay alive with them. They are the good guys. It's perverse that the scorched earth which The Road depicts often brings to mind those real apocalypses of southern Iraq beneath black oil smoke, or New Orleans - vistas not unconnected with the contemporary American regime. The man and boy stay in the bunker for days, eating and sleeping. Put The Road Home on your own shortlist. It is significant that Christy is himself an immigrant, as are the few others who deign to offer Lev help or comfort as he tries to settle into London life.

I think, at the very least, you should understand what it is they do and what their families go through. They can't find the man, but leave his clothes in the road.

Distance: One night a few years back while camped on a mountain saddle I awoke and some sort of visual distortion led me to believe that the moon and Venus were but a few feet away, and the stars that surrounded them only a few feet further.
