01/27/2011 - 6:00pm

This A Closer Look Book Club will take on Cormac McCarthy’s masterwork, Blood Meridian, which chronicles the brutal world of the Texas-Mexico borderlands in the mid-nineteenth century. Its wounded hero, the teenage Kid, must confront the extraordinary violence of the Glanton gang, a murderous cadre of scalphunters. Of Blood Meridian, literary scholar Harold Bloom wrote, “I venture that no other living American novelist, not even Pynchon, has given us a book as strong and memorable.”
