    At the root of being


    Far away from the celebrity circus, in the vastness and emptiness of New Mexico, the writer Cormac McCarthy sat at his Olivetti and created world literature. He has now died at the age of 89. An obituary.

    The incest baby left in the woods in “It’s Dark”. The explicitly described desecration of a dead person in “A Child of God”. The psychopathic killer who prefers to use a bolt gun for his hit jobs in “No Country for Old Men”. Life is mostly cruel in Cormac McCarthy’s books and you’ve accomplished a lot just by surviving.
