Default The Road

In his national best seller book, "The Road," author Cormac McCarthy makes two provocative references to trout. Thanks to my son for loaning his copy. I highly recommend it.

he grew up in Knoxville and went to UT, but you probably already know that. His novel "Sutree" takes place in Knoxville.

John Ehle wrote a novel called 'The Road' as well [1966 IIRC] which is set in the Carolina mtns. Ehle is a NC writer-considered 'regional'. Oddly enough, his style has the noir aspects of Cormac. Ehle has several books based in the appalachians and on 'mountain' society. Ghost

The movie opens Nov 25. I don't think we're going to enjoy the images of the streams.

Is The Road partially set in the Smokys? Given that it is post-apocalyptic movie I would think you are right about not enjoying the images of the streams.
