44771 I read, in your chat on the New Yorker, that you were influenced in part by Cormac McCarthy's "The Road".

I so loved reading "Room" that I proceeded to read "The Road" and am quite glad that I did. One of the interesting differences couldn't help noticing is the lack of specification of the boy's age in "The Road" contrasted so sharply with the opening sentences of "Room". Both of you painted your dystopias very convincingly, but I thought that you were more effective an making the love between parent and child so palpable.

Thank you for your work!
