In search of a book

24 Jul

Just got back from my very long lunch without getting as much as a crumb in.

I went to search for a book by Cormac McCarthy, the one about pretty horses. See, just yesterday I finished his ‘The Road’. What a beautiful book! The language is stunning, bordering on poetry… listen to this: ”borrowed time and borrowed world and borrowed eyes with which to sorrow it”. Or this: ”by day the banished sun circles the earth like a grieving mother with a lamp”. So I set on my road to the bookstore. No ‘All the pretty horses” though.

I did find a few other seemingly interesting books and will post a note or two about them once I’m finished devouring them:)  yes, that’s exactly what I do with books lately.
