American Jeremiah

Is Cormac McCarthy a prophet? The Independent roams the theo-philosophical landscape of the novelist, author of the book-cum-Oscar-winning film, No Country for Old Men. The selected McCarthy prose at the end of the piece reminds me of the apocalyptic vision of Chris Adrian, who likewise explores spiritual terrain in his novel, Children's Hospital, to great effect.

As for the suggestion that McCarthy is America's Jeremiah, decide for yourself.
