Child Of God by Cormac McCarthy

Child of God - Cormac McCarthy


Description: In this taut, chilling novel, Lester Ballard--a violent, dispossessed man falsely accused of rape--haunts the hill country of East Tennessee when he is released from jail. While telling his story, Cormac McCarthy depicts the most sordid aspects of life with dignity, humor, and characteristic lyrical brilliance.

Not for the squeamish. Now for the film.
