Reviews of The Sunset Limited

Overall customer rating: 5.000


by BobCumbow on Sep 10, 2009

Like all of McCarthy's work, this "novel in dramatic form"--actually a two-character one-act play--is powerful, rich with provocative speculation about human hope and despair, by turns homespun, funny, contemplative, and profound. A white man and a black man talk in the latter's shabby apartment; the event that has brought them together emerges only gradually, and the impact between their separate ways of seeing the world leads to one of McCarthy's most thoughtful, uncompromising, and troubling endings.
