Dear Library Patrons, The mission of NYPL is to inspire lifelong learning, advance knowledge, and strengthen our communities.

We are trying to raise $500,000 by December 31: an ambitious goal, but one that will fund incredible learning and reading in our community.

La carretera

McCarthy, Cormac, 1933-

(Book - 2007 - Spanish)
La carretera
America is a barren landscape of smoldering ashes, devoid of life except for those people still struggling to scratch out some type of existence. Amidst the destruction, a father and his young son walk, always toward the coast, but with no real understanding that circumstances will improve once they arrive. Still they persevere, and their relationship comes to represent goodness in a world that is utterly devastated. Esta novela "transcurre en la inmensidad del territorio norteamericano, un paisaje literalmente quemado por lo que parace haber sido un reciente holocausto nuclear. Un padre trata de salvar a su hijo emprendiendo un viaje con él. Rodeados de un paisaje baldío, amenazados por bandas de caníbales, empujando un carrito de la compra donde guardan sus escasas pertenencias, recorren los lugares donde el padre pasó una infancia recordada a veces en forma de breves bocetos del paraíso perdido, y avanzan hacia el sur, hacia el mar, huyendo de un frío 'capaz de romper las rocas.'" --Back cover.
