Cormac McCarthy Interview

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.

I finished The Road a few weeks ago. Painful. Will be interesting to see it done in film. E.

I really liked The Road. Very powerful and it had a great ending.
