More About This Book

Overview

En este último volumen de la Trilogía de la frontera, McCarthy reúne a John Grady y a Billy Parham, los protagonistas de las dos primeras novelas. Dos antihéroes que arrastran un pasado de desarraigo y verdadero exilio interior en un mundo en el que su forma de vida, individualista e independiente, se ve marginada por la invasión de la modernidad. La acción arranca en 1952 en un rancho de Nuevo México que está a punto de ser expropiado por el ejército. Con el escenario de fondo de las tierras fronterizas entre Estados Unidos y México, lugar de encuentro y desencuentro de dos universos aparentemente divergentes, la vida de ambos protagonistas se verá atravesada por la aparición de unos valores en los que nunca encontrarán acomodo. Condenados por una historia que ya no cuenta con ellos, Billy y Grady devienen así los verdaderos supervivientes de un mundo en el que la lealtad, el valor, el esfuerzo y la vida en contacto con la naturaleza eran algo más que una reliquia.

«Cormac McCarthy pertenece a la saga de los enigmáticos, como Pynchon o Salinger, y su obra alcanza las cimas de un Melville o un Faulkner.»
