An outstanding group of scholars, authors, journalists and historians explores the social, economic, political and literary influences on the autobiographical masterpiece of Cormac McCarthy's Tennessee period. The only dedicated volume of critical essays on many aspects of this complex work, this volume discusses the Knoxville of McCarthy's childhood, its real-life denizens who became the novel's unforgettable characters, the problematic influences of Mark Twain, James Joyce and James Agee on its composition, the impact of the Tennessee Valley Authority on the shaping of the region that is as much a character as any who populate its pages. This newly enlarged and revised second edition contains more material on the Knoxville of Cormac McCarthy's youth, a primary source for his Appalachian period works. A must-have volume for all serious Cormac McCarthy readers.
