The Wall Street Journal has a marvelous interview with novelist Cormac McCarthy. The film based on his novel, "The Road," is coming out this month. [I've already praised the book in this blog.] An excerpt from the interview that immediately told me Cormac is my kind of guy:
WSJ: But is there something compelling about the collaborative process [of film making] compared to the solitary job of writing?
CM: Yes, it would compel you to avoid it at all costs.
