Publisher's Summary

A beautifully crafted, consistently thought-provoking, and deeply intimate work by one of the most insightful writers of our time. A startling encounter on a New York subway platform leads two strangers to a run-down tenement where a life-or-death decision must be made. In that small apartment, 'Black' and 'White', as the two men are known, begin a conversation that leads each back through his own history. Their aim is no less than this: to discover the meaning of life.

    Love quirky fiction, spine-chilling sci-fi and epic histories. My favourite audiobook is Brighton Rock read by Samuel West.

    "Too much hard work"

    As a fan of McCarthy I was really disappointed by this, and despite being a short story, I still gave up on it. It's well acted but plays out like one of those godawful stage plays that university drama societies put on to appear high-brow. Just too painful to finish. Read Blood Meridian instead.

    "Apotheosis"

    Cornac McCarthy writes books that will leave you changed. This is one of his best. Shorter, a novel 'in dramatic form'. The reading is rich with drama. The prose excellent, sinuous - philosophy mixed with theology to profound effect. The simple antithesis of the two characters - Black and White - as sharply drawn as one could imagine. They transcend their stereotypes, each the epitome, the apotheosis of all they represent.
