From the Back Cover:

"A perfectly executed work of the imagination. [McCarthy] has made the fabulous real, the ordinary mysterious." --The New York Times

"McCarthy is a master stylist, perhaps without an equal in American letters. . . . In [his] hands, everything is done with consummate skill--a kind of maximalism with precision crafting." --Village Voice

"McCarthy's re-creation of the local dialect is surpassed by his poetic descriptions of the land and its people . . . a profound parable that ultimately speaks to any society at any time." --Time

From the Inside Flap:

Outer Dark is a novel at once fabular and starkly evocative, set is an unspecified place in Appalachia, sometime around the turn of the century.  A woman bears her brother's child, a boy; he leaves the baby in the woods and tells her he died of natural causes.  Discovering her brother's lie, she sets forth alone to find her son.  Both brother and sister wander separately through a countryside being scourged by three terrifying and elusive strangers, headlong toward an eerie, apocalyptic resolution.
