No Country for old Men

No Country for Old Men by Cormac McCarthy

Next Thursday, February 20th, the group will meet and discuss the book No Country for Old Men by Cormac McCarthy.

Here’s a synopsis: “In the late-19th-century world of James, upper-class New Yorkers move in an atmosphere of gentle melancholy, with just a touch of decadence. Catherine Sloper is neither brilliant nor charming, merely good. She is also the heiress Mr. Townsend wants to marry. Her father wants to protect her, or is it that he is more concerned with thwarting a defiant bounder? Her aunt uses Catherine’s romance as an opportunity to add drama to her own life. Who will win? What is winning in this situation? Most of the book is devoted to a delicate exploration of the thoughts, activities, and motivations of a small group of people.
