Cormac McCarthy, Cities of the Plain

Cormac McCarthy had written five previous novels, when he published All the Pretty Horses in 1992. It was an amazing critical and popular success. All the Pretty Horses is the tale of John Grady Cole, who at sixteen finds himself at the end of a long line of Texas ranchers, cut off from the only life he has ever imagined for himself. With two companions, he sets off for Mexico on a sometimes idyllic, sometimes comic journey to a place where dreams are paid for in blood. Winner of the National Book Award for Fiction. In Cities of the Plain John Grady Cole and Billy Parham are again drawn on the trail across the border to Mexico – and the cities of the plain.
