A novel that critics hailed as “heartbreaking” and “emotionally shattering,” The Road is one of the finest achievements in literature of the 21st century. Awarded the 2007 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, The Road is a searing, post-apocalyptic novel about one father and son’s fight to survive as they walk through the desolate burned landscape of America.
An unflinching meditation on the best and worst that humanity is capable of, The Road is a journey of two travelers devoid of hope but sustained by love. This edition features an exclusive introduction by Joyce Carol Oates.
