Set in Sevier County, Tenn., in the 1960s, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Cormac McCarthy’s third novel chronicles the life of outcast Lester Ballad. Deprived of family and a home, Ballard descends into a life completely outside social norms, haunting the county with increasing cruelty and depravity. With Child of God, Cormac McCarthy continues exploring now familiar themes of isolation, perversity, and violence as part of the human condition.
