Cormac McCarthy Wins the James Tait Black
Posted by: Keir Graff

Ending a long drought, Cormac McCarthy’s The Road has won a major literary prize. (What has it been, four months?) From the Beeb (“Author McCarthy scoops book prize“):

Pulitzer Prize-winning US author Cormac McCarthy has won the UK’s oldest literary award, the James Tait Black Memorial Prize for fiction.

Yes, it’s a welcome turn of events for this brilliant but near-unknown author, whose ongoing struggle for recognition recently received the attention of plucky, up-and-coming journalist Oprah.
