John Jurgensen Interviews Cormac McCarthy

John Jurgensen interviewed author Cormac McCarthy (author of All the Pretty Horses and The Road) in the Wall Street Journal.  McCarthy is a writer of prose that is both muscular and lyrical.  In the interview, McCarthy talks about many things, including the difference between making movies and writing novels.

Dick Pearce and I made a film in North Carolina about 30 years ago and I thought, "This is just hell. Who would do this?" Instead, I get up and have a cup of coffee and wander around and read a little bit, sit down and type a few words and look out the window.
