Literary masters of misery
Yesterday the Indie on Sunday ran a great piece on the literary masters of misery. Cue Cormac McCarthy then. Today is also supposed to be the most 'dispiriting' day of the year! A friend I'm going to the cinema with this evening said to me that he's fed up of the slew of dystopic/apocalyptic films that are currently out - The Road, The Book of Eli etc... but I like 'em, as long as they're well done, which, alas, neither The Road or the dreadful Book of Eli was! Story here. He agreed on that.
