The final volume of The Border Trilogy, two men marked by the boyhood adventures of 'All the Pretty Horses' and 'The Crossing' (see rja443) now stand together,in the still point between their vivid pasts and uncertain futures,to confront a country changing or already changed beyond recognition.
In the terrible beauty of 'Cities of the Plain' - with its magisterial prose,humour both wry and outright,fierce conviction and unwavering humanity - Cormac McCarthy has completed a landmark of our literature and times,an epic that reaches from tales of the old west,the world past,into the new millenium,the world to come.
