Awesome Prose – The Road
October 26, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
One of the squad’s 3 Awesome Reading groups – designed to think about how we can read as writers.
If you want to join us, then here’s what you need to know:
We will be reading Cormac McCarthy’s The Road. The text can be bought here.
The Road is the astonishing post-apocalyptic and Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Cormac McCarthy.
A father and his young son walk alone through burned America, heading slowly for the coast. Nothing moves in the ravaged landscape save the ash on the wind. They have nothing but a pistol to defend themselves against the men who stalk the road, the clothes they are wearing, a cart of scavenged food – and each other.
