In this taut, chilling novel, Lester Ballard—a violent, dispossessed man falsely accused of rape—haunts the hill country of East Tennessee when he is released from jail.

A suspenseful, spare, and compelling read, Child of God is McCarthy’s most extreme challenge to the limits of propriety. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Vladislav | 2/19/2014

    " Spare and lyrical masterpiece of the Southern Gothic about trials and tribulations of a cave-dwelling cross-dressing necrophiliac hick. Lovely. What a way to start a new year... "

    " This story was bleak, twisted, and seriously fucked-up, yet Cormac's writing is a thing of beauty and I am so glad that I read this! Not for the faint-of-heart, it describes what the human animal devolves into when the powers-that-be take everything away from someone who is already scraping to survive. An excellent western prose that paints disturbing clarity on our not-so-distant past, I believe this book spotlights clear insight into the next breed of serial-killers currently being spawned and cultivated by our current system of corporate greed (IMHO!). "

    " I think this may be the darkest book I have ever read. How someone can write so beautifully about such abhorrent subject matter is a mystery to me. I like mysteries though. "
