Book cover for Cormac McCarthy and Performance

Published in June 2017, Stacey Peebles’ Cormac McCarthy and Performance: Page, Stage, Screen is the first comprehensive overview of McCarthy’s writing for film and theatre. Known for his novels Blood Meridian, All the Pretty Horses, and The Road, McCarthy is also the author of five screenplays, two plays, and several film adaptions of his work. Drawing on primary sources from McCarthy’s recently opened archive and interviews with several of his collaborations, Peebles offers insights into McCarthy’s writing life and the central significance of tragedy, violence, and human suffering in his narratives.

Her other books include Welcome to the Suck: Narrating the American Soldier’s Experience in Iraq (2011) and a collection entitled Violence in Literature (2014).
