Synopsis

The Road is the astonishing post-apocalyptic novel by Cormac McCarthy, and winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 2007.

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.

The Road is the profoundly moving story of a journey. It boldly imagines a future in which no hope remains, but in which the father and his son, “each the other’s world entire,” are sustained by love.

Awesome in the totality of its vision, it is an unflinching meditation on the worst and the best that we are capable of: ultimate destructiveness, desperate tenacity, and the tenderness that keeps two people alive in the face of total devastation.
