Blood Meridian: 30th Anniversary

Philipp Meyer celebrates Cormac McCarthy’s dark and violent Western, Blood Meridian: Or, The Evening Redness in the West:

“[Blood Meridian] – his masterpiece – marks both a pinnacle and a turning point in his career. It is the first of his western novels and the last of his darker, meaner books. With one exception, all the books that follow Blood Meridian have a softer edge – sympathetic protagonists engaged in sympathetic quests.”
