Haiku book review: Outer Dark


“Outer Dark” is like

a beautifully-written

postcard from Hell.


Not sure what it is about Cormac McCarthy that makes me want to write haikus, but it is what it is. I just want to buy him an ice cream and a balloon. Maybe he’ll smile.

A note about the top illustration: it comes from an Irish artist named Peter Tinkler, who did a series of art inspired by three of McCarthy’s books. It’s really worth a look.
