No Country for Old Men


Description: Cormac McCarthy, best-selling author of National Book Award winner All the Pretty Horses, delivers his first new novel in seven years. Written in muscular prose, No Country for Old Men is a powerful tale of the West that moves at a blistering pace.

Llewelyn Moss is hunting antelope near the Texas-Mexico border when he stumbles upon several dead men, a big stash of heroin, and more than two million dollars in cash. He takes off with the money, and the hunter becomes the haunted. A drug cartel hires a former Special Forces agent to track down the loot, and a ruthless killer joins the chase as well. Also looking for Moss is the aging Sheriff Bell, a World War II veteran who may be Moss’ only hope for survival.

Raw and lean, No Country for Old Men is another masterpiece from one of America’s acclaimed novelists.

Cities of the Plain

Cities of the Plain


Description: On a ranch in southeastern Texas, soon after World War II, a group of solitary, inarticulately lonely men gathers to work animals as the sun sets for good on the mythic American West. All of these men nurse losses both personal (siblings or wives) and collective (a shared lifestyle and philosophy). Among them is John Grady Cole, the adolescent hero of the first book in Cormac McCarthy’s Border trilogy, All the Pretty Horses. John Grady remains the magnificent horseman he always was, and he still dreams too much. On the ranch, he meets Billy Parham, whose own tragic sojourn through Mexico in The Crossing, the second book of the set, continues to quietly suffocate him. The two form a friendship that will nurture both but save neither from the destiny that McCarthy’s characters always sense lurching to meet them.

Soaked in storm-heavy atmosphere but brightened by the ranch-hands’ easy camaraderie and gentle humor, Cities of the Plain surprises with its sweetness. The awkward doomed-romance plot at the center of this tight, concise novel fails to convince, but, remarkably, does little to undercut the book’s impact. What lingers here, and what matters, are the brooding, eerie portraits of the plains and the riders, glimpsed mostly alone but occasionally leaning together, who slip across them, over the horizon into memory.

Cesta

Description: Román Cesta se odehrává ve světě sežehnutém neznámou katastrofou. Otec se synem putují šedivou zimní krajinou a děsí se každého náznaku, že nejsou sami, kdo přežil; od posledních lidí totiž rozhodně nemohou čekat nic dobrého. Dvojici drží při životě jen to, co uveze jejich nákupní vozík a co občas najdou v prázdných domech. Jejich cílem je mořské pobřeží, ale i tam se samozřejmě ukáže, že naděje už neexistuje. Nebo snad ano?
