Child of God

Novel by Cormac McCarthy

Blurb

Child of God is the third novel by American author Cormac McCarthy. It depicts the life of a violent young outcast in 1960s Appalachian Tennessee.
Though the novel received critical praise, it was not a financial success. Like its predecessor Outer Dark, Child of God established McCarthy's interest in using extreme isolation, perversity, and violence to represent normal human experience. McCarthy ignores literary conventions – for example, he does not use quotation marks – and switches between several styles of writing such as matter-of-fact descriptions, almost poetic prose, and colloquial first-person narration.

You nailed it author, I was sucked right after reading the the first few paragraphs. You know what, I suggest you publish this in NovelStar. A lot of readers will love your work.
