Cormac McCarthy interview

posted by Jason Kottke   Nov 18, 2009

The WSJ has a conversation with Cormac McCarthy.

Your future gets shorter and you recognize that. In recent years, I have had no desire to do anything but work and be with [my son] John. I hear people talking about going on a vacation or something and I think, what is that about? I have no desire to go on a trip. My perfect day is sitting in a room with some blank paper. That's heaven. That's gold and anything else is just a waste of time.

Before reading this interview, I didn't know much about McCarthy — he's a fellow at the Santa Fe Institute? — but now I think I need to read The Road. (via df)
