The Road Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction

The Road is the astonishing post-apocalyptic and Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Cormac McCarthy. A father and his young son walk alone through burned America, heading slowly for the coast. Nothing moves in the ravaged landscape save the ash on the wind. They have nothing but a pistol to defend themselves against the men who stalk the road, the clothes they are wearing, a cart of scavenged food – and each other. 'So good that it will devour you. It is incandescent.' – Daily Telegraph
