Read in February, 2008

I'd imagine that this study of humanity and inhumanity in the desolate, ash-blown landscape of some post-apocalyptic American west has already had plenty written about it, so I'll just say that it was good. The spare, unpunctuated prose is devastatingly precise, and the narrative, despite a few clumsy bits, I think successfully navigates tricky emotional terrain mostly without sentimentality or excess.
