A powerful, dramatic playfrom the bestselling author of No Country for Old Men and The Road
Cormac McCarthy is the author of many acclaimed novels, including The Road, Blood Meridian and No Country For Old Men. In addition to The Stonemason, he is also the author of another play, The Sunset Limited, and several screenplays. Among his honours are the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and the PEN/Saul Bellow Award for lifetime achievement in American literature.
Expertly constructed and limpidly written, the play triumphs in its presentation of Papaw, whose earthy wisdom McCarthy makes altogether credible. Chicago Tribune Mr McCarthy has the best kind of Southern style, one that fuses risky eloquence, intricate rhythms and dead-to-rights accuracy. New York Times McCarthy is a born storyteller, a writer of natural, impeccable dialogue, a literary child of Faulkner. New Republic
