Just finished All the Pretty Horses.
Astounding. Soulful and haunting. A simple story with simple characters… that plumb the depths of the human experience and the connection between person and place.
There were some lines that made me catch my breath.
I read the book in one day. It’s that good. The story moves along, but, thankfully, it never gets frantic or pandering (like other novels get because they want to sell copies).
Here is an artist at work.
