I hope that one day my knowledge of farming will be as deep as his knowledge of the subjects that he writes about in this trilogy.
What I do know is that I will never attempt to be a writer as it is when you read McCarthy you realise what it takes to write a novel that is not only totally gripping but so layered with deep knowledge about so many things. He clearly knows so much about horses, humans, Mexico, biology, botany, Texas etc it amazes me.
Another human who proves that whoever coined the phrase “Jack of all trades and master of none” was merely jealous of people like Cormac McCarthy.
