«Ein Leseerlebnis, so intensiv, dass es ästhetische Kategorien geradezu über den Haufen zu werfen scheint ... geschrieben in einer kostbaren, einfachen und doch poetischen Sprache.» (New Republic) Tennessee in den sechziger Jahren: Lester Ballard ist ein Ausgestoßener, einsam und gewalttätig. Als ihm nach und nach die Reste eines normalen Lebens abhandenkommen, wird er zum Höhlenbewohner, zum Serienmörder, schließlich zum Nekrophilen. Er gerät in Haft, in die Psychiatrie, in die Gewalt rachsüchtiger Männer. Lester Ballard, «vielleicht ein Kind Gottes, ganz wie man selbst». «McCarthy kartiert den schrecklichen Abstieg seines Helden mit Leidenschaft, Zärtlichkeit, Beredsamkeit und mit einem Humor, der perfekt zur bitteren Verschrobenheit des Südens passt.» (Times Literary Supplement) «Ein kraftvoller, talentierter Autor, dem es gelingt, Mitgefühl für seinen Helden zu erwecken, so schrecklich dessen Taten auch sind.» (Sunday Times) Cormac McCarthys vielleicht düsterster Roman – zum ersten Mal auf Deutsch

Following All the Pretty Horses in Cormac McCarthy's Border Trilogy is a novel whose force of language is matched only by its breadth of experience and depth of thought. In the bootheel of New Mexico hard on the frontier, Billy and Boyd Parham are just boys in the years before the Second World War, but on the cusp of unimaginable events. First comes a trespassing Indian and the dream of wolves running wild amongst the cattle lately brought onto the plain by settlers -- this when all the wisdom of trappers has disappeared along with the trappers themselves. And so Billy sets forth at the age of sixteen on an unwitting journey into the souls of boys and animals and men. Having trapped a she-wolf he would restore to the mountains of Mexico, he is long gone and returns to find everything he left behind transformed utterly in his absence. Except his kid brother, Boyd, with whom he strikes out yet again to reclaim what is theirs thus crossing into "that antique gaze from whence there could be no way back forever." An essential novel by any measure, The Crossing is luminous and appalling, a book that touches, stops, and starts the heart and mind at once. From the Trade Paperback edition.
