One of my favorite authors is Cormac McCarthy – and his recent book The Road is, in my opinion, one of his best. It was with a great deal of interest that I discovered a Slate article which featured an audio of a distinguished panel discussing it. I think you will enjoy it.

This month, Slate‘s Audio Book Club looks at Cormac McCarthy’s best-selling post-apocalyptic road novel, The Road. Is the book a lyrical meditation on existential questions of survival? A gimmicky parenting manual? An exploration of the role of religion in modern life? Meghan O’Rourke, Katie Roiphe, and John Burnham Schwartz discuss these and other questions in the podcast.
John is especially effective as he probes well the McCarthy style and spirit.
