Riassunto: By the author of the critically acclaimed "Border Trilogy", "Outer Dark" is a novel at once mythic and starkly evocative, set in an unspecified place in Appalachia sometime around the turn of the century. A woman bears her brother's child, a boy; the brother leaves the baby in the woods and tells her he died of natural causes. Discovering her brother's lie, she sets forth alone to find her son. Both brother and sister wander separately through a countryside being scourged by three terrifying and elusive strangers, headlong toward an eerie, apocalyptic resolution. "McCarthy is a master stylist, perhaps without equal in American letters ...In his hands, everything is done with consummate skill" - "Village Voice". "McCarthy has made the fabulous real, the ordinary mysterious" - "New York Times". "A profound parable that ultimately speaks to any society in any time" - "Time".

"A perfectly executed work of the imagination. [McCarthy] has made the fabulous real, the ordinary mysterious." --The New York Times
"McCarthy is a master stylist, perhaps without an equal in American letters. . . . In [his] hands, everything is done with consummate skill--a kind of maximalism with precision crafting." --Village Voice
"McCarthy's re-creation of the local dialect is surpassed by his poetic descriptions of the land and its people . . . a profound parable that ultimately speaks to any society at any time." --Time
