The aftermath. Of what? It doesn't matter. The world as we know it, is over. And to walk us through what is left, is the man and the boy. There is no need for names, times, or places.

Top 10 - Cormac McCarthy (10 books items)

"“Once there were brook trout in the streams in the mountains. You could see them standing in the amber current where the white edges of their fins wimpled softly in the flow. They smelled of moss in your hand. Polished and muscular and torsional. On their backs were vermiculate patterns that were maps of the world in its becoming. Maps and mazes.
