Harold Bloom named Blood Meridian, or the Evening Redness in the West the most disturbing book he ever read. Disturbing, yes. However, it is Child of God that claims that spot on the shelf for me.
How many times have you walked past a stranger and not acknowledged their presence? Or, how many times have you made assumptions about a person based on their appearance, small, uncleaned, unshaven?
Unavoidably I am drawn to a poem by Marie Howe , "The Star Market," in her collection The Kingdom of Ordinary Time: Poems.
An old lead-colored man standing next to me at the checkout breathed so heavily I had to step back a few steps. Even after his bags were packed he still stood, breathing hard and hawking into his hand.
The feeble, the lame, I could hardly look at them: shuffling through the aisles, they smelled of decay, as if the Star Market had declared a day off for the able-bodied, and I had wandered in with the rest of them—sour milk, bad meat— looking for cereal and spring water.
Jesus must have been a saint, I said to myself, looking for my lost car in the parking lot later, stumbling among the people who would have been lowered into rooms by ropes, who would have crept out of caves or crawled from the corners of public baths on their hands and knees begging for mercy.
If I touch only the hem of his garment, one woman thought, could I bear the look on his face when he wheels around? View all 13 comments.

There is something inherently wrong with Lester Ballard. As he skulks through the backwoods of Eastern Tennessee, a hunting rifle is his only companion.
Ballard's skewed thinking, awkward ways, and repugnant proclivities render him unfit to be around other people.

This novel is a descent into the darkness that can befall an uneducated and amoral man when left to his own devices; someone abandoned on the fringes of civilization and left to fend for themselves with what little they possess.
When basic needs aren't met and baser desires are never addressed or fulfilled, the human reaction is often extreme and appalling.
History has taught us this time and time again. Lester Ballad is quite possibly one of the most reprehensible characters in modern literature, yet it is impossible to hate him completely.
We are products of our environments, the results of upbringings and teachings. What happens to those who have been locked out of normality by the same societies that judge them?
If you know anything about Cormac McCarthy, you'll know that the brilliant author is not known for holding back or giving a single shit about how "offended" you might be by some of the harsh realities humanity has to offer.
Read this book and you will be shocked. You will be upset. But above all, you will be wading into territory very few writers have the fortitude to map and conquer.
It is a must read for any avid adult reader; a book that is both brave and depraved at the same time. You have been welcomed. You have been warned.

Just kidding. However, just in case you think Mitchell and I are slipping, please note that this title was added to the TBR once we discovered it was about a necrophile, which is basically our literary equivalent to.
As I said before, the story here is about a man named Lester Ballard. Much like other experiences with Cormac McCarthy, we readers are kind of plunked down in the middle of the goings on.
You know his mother left when he was a boy and that his father hung himself. To say things go downhill for Lester from there would be the understatement of the century because by Part II.
As for me? I'm also haunted by the question that begs to be answered — was the man born a monster or was it man who turned him into a monster?

It wasn't as absurdly redeeming as Suttree or as coldly beautiful as Blood Meridian, or the Evening Redness in the West , but had the surreal shock and awe of both.
His themes of isolation, perversity, depravity and violence make you feel like climbing into bed with Hannibal Lector or Jame Gumb for warmth and spiritual succor.
A great novel, just not a novel that everyone should read. Wander into the dark, damp cave of this McCarthy novel at your own damn risk.

I usually try to stay away from any kind of review or description of a book just prior to reading, but I had recently come across the fact that this was supposed to be McCarthy's darkest work.
Boy, I'll say. This book will make you feel like you need a long shower afterwards. I believe that this was the same affect that Ellis was going for in 'American Psycho', but I think that McCarthy out-Batemaned him on this on 'Child of God' is the third McCarthy book that I have read over the past few weeks.
I believe that this was the same affect that Ellis was going for in 'American Psycho', but I think that McCarthy out-Batemaned him on this one.
This book caused many more squirmy moments for me than 'American Psycho' did. The reason for the four stars is because of McCarthy's writing style.
He intrigues me as a writer because his prose seems to be very sparse, yet at the same time oddly descriptive. In any given scene he seems to focus on the things that no other writer would focus on, and this gives his work a certain eerieness.
What this means as far as this book is that we get to witness the ugliness of life that is brought about by extreme poverty and ignorance with little possibility of a reprieve from either.
Leading the charge is main character Lester Ballard, who is on a real redneck rampage. Imagine the character of Ernest T.
Bass from the Andy Griffith show and Buffalo Bill from 'Silence of the Lambs' having a love child. Then imagine this child having all of the charm and warmth of the toothless fellow that defiled Ned Beatty and his tighty whities in 'Deliverance' and you pretty much have a composite sketch of Lester Ballard.
The tone of the story reminded me of 'No Country For Old Men' in that it is basically McCarthy saying "here's a disturbing story, let's take a closer look The sheriff in this one is not as fleshed out as a character as the one in 'No Country', so I didn't even pick up on any higher moral messages that may have been afoot.
Basically, if you like McCarthy beyond the sphere of Oprah, you have probably already read this book. If you like that squirmy feeling that arises during off-kilter scenes of violence and sex, by all means give this one a try.
Now it's time for a couple of tangents for my own amusement First, does anyone else have a fixed mental image of a writer when reading a literary work?
The most obvious example of this would be the one picture everyone has seen of Poe or Emily Dickinson.
My mental image of McCarthy was always that of the wisened old guy of amazing reproductive prowess. If you don't know the one I speak of, go to the quotes section and type in his name.
However, I learned from the back cover of this book that back in the Seventies he was the John Holmes of reclusive, literary types.
If you care to see for yourself, here's a link Second and more seriously, I am intrigued by the potential history of a book. If it's used or from the library I always wonder who else has held this book and what did it mean to them?
Of course at the same time I am hoping against hope that it was not a nose-picker or chronic pimple-popper, and so it goes.
The reason for bringing this up is because I checked this book out from the same library that I often frequented as a small child.
The copyright is and the library stamp is , so the book has been there almost as long as i've been alive. I'm just curious how many times I may have tottered past the shelf on my way to play with the puppets or check out 'The Hats of Bartholemew Cubbins' for the twenty-seventh time completely unaware of this little seething slab of darkness that awaited.
Also, this town is the epitome of conservatism and fundamentalism rush limbaugh grew up here, if that gives you a clue so what the heck is this book doing in our library?
The only other McCarthy books that they have in stock are the "Big Three" from the last few years. Was the person in charge of ordering books in '74 simply unaware, or was it all a part of a plan to throw a monkey wrench in the system?
Alas, some questions can never be answered and all self-indulgences including this one must come to an end. Sep 01, Melody rated it really liked it Shelves: third-thursday-bookgroup.
This is one of those books that, when you read it, and really like it, it makes you wonder if you should be worried about yourself.
But then you should have known better. I mean you found the brown thing on the floor, so there was no way you REALLY could have been expecting chocolate and then, Oh look!
I mean this book is written by Cormac McCarthy — so I knew what it would be like. The main character is like those people you try to avoid in The Road but this book takes place before whatever catastrophic happening brings down civilization.
But I might just read it again. If you like this you should also read And the Ass Saw the Angel by Nick Cave and Ironweed by William Kennedy.

When he finds a couple dead in a parked car, he takes the woman with him to be his necro-concubine in a house in which he's squatting. The writing was good, covering themes of violent cruelty, sexual deviancy and moral degradation.

There was two main reasons for re-reading this novel in the month of October , one was due to reading William Gay's novel The provinces of night of which the title is taken from the opening sentence of a chapter from this novel.
The second reason was Donald Ray Pollock's recommendation to read this in a recent interview I had with him. I am now more convinced that we have in our midst a great writer.

This story is the opposite to what the title may lead you to believe it is about, the main character is ungodly almost like he is a devilish entity creating havoc across the land.
McCarthy has crafted together a story successfully with master craftsmanship, containing a subject matter that is at times one of the most brutal and gruesome you would read of in a story.
This story reads like it was penned as a collaborative work by Jim Thompson and William Faulkner. Reminiscent of a recent good story with a similar darkness, The Devil All the Time by Donald Ray Pollock.
The main protagonist is a an individual whose disturbed, a sociopath, who does the unspeakable with the dead. There are shocking moments, repulsive and bizarre, in one place in the story he carried off a dead woman, along with the squirrels he hunted, to a resting place to partake in unspeakable acts.
He also has the murder of a child to his name, there is yonder much toil, blood, and darkness. The tale is shockingly, vivid, and terrible in content, but told in great sentences, with words in the right places.
Told by an author who can make the groutesque and terrible beautiful with his lyrical craftmanship. The right length of novel that would linger in your mind either in shock or awe.
He is small, unclean, unshaven. He moves in the dry chaff among the dust and slats of sunlight with a constrained truculence.
Wasps pass in a through the laddered light from the barnslats in a succession of strobic moments, gold and trembling between black and black, like fireflies in the serried upper gloom.
An illusion of multiple voices, a ghost chorus among old ruins. Lying with his fingers plugged in the bores of his ears against the strident cheeping of the myriad black crickets with which he kept household in the barren cabin.
One night on his pallet while half asleep he heard something scamper through the room and vault ghostly he saw, struggling erect through the open window.
He sat there looking after it but it was gone. He could hear foxhounds in full cry, tortured wails and yelps nigh unto agony coming up the creek, up the valley.
They flooded into the cabin yard in a pandemonium of soprano howls and crashing brush. This rainy summer day. He passed a dark lake of silent fade where the moss walls rose sheer and plumb and a small blue bird sat slant upon a guywire in the void.
He worked for old man Whaley settln fenceposts at eight cents a post to buy it. Told me he quit midmornin right in the middle of the field the day he got enough money.
I don't remember what he give for it but I think it come to over seven hundred posts. Ill say one thing He could by god shoot it. Hit anything he could see.
I seen him shoot a spider out of a web in the top of a big redoak one time and we was far from the tree as from here to the road yonder.
They run him off out at the fair one time. Wouldn't let him shoot no more. After a while he just sat holding her, his hands feeling her body under the new clothes.
He undressed her very slowly, talking to her. Then he pulled off his trousers and lay next to her Per the proposed new GR rating system: 4 goatheads; 4 pentagramatical swords; color: heliotrope!
Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God's love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.
Make them known to your children and your children's children—. You shall not bow down to them or serve them, for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and the fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing steadfast love to thousands of those who love me and keep my commandments.
I am reminded of your sincere faith, a faith that dwelt first in your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice and now, I am sure, dwells in you as well.
Do not withhold discipline from a child; if you strike him with a rod, he will not die. If you strike him with the rod, you will save his soul from Sheol.
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Josiah was eight years old when he began to reign, and he reigned thirty-one years in Jerusalem. And he did what was right in the eyes of the Lord , and walked in the ways of David his father; and he did not turn aside to the right hand or to the left.
For in the eighth year of his reign, while he was yet a boy, he began to seek the God of David his father, and in the twelfth year he began to purge Judah and Jerusalem of the high places, the Asherim, and the carved and the metal images.
No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.
Even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him.
In love. Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity. Likewise, you who are younger, be subject to the elders.
The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, provided we suffer with him in order that we may also be glorified with him.
Now they were bringing even infants to him that he might touch them. And when the disciples saw it, they rebuked them.
And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.
