A man and his young son traverse a blasted American landscape‚ covered with the ashes of “the late world.” The man can still remember the time before — but not the boy. There is nothing for them except survival‚ and the precious last vestiges of their own humanity. At once brutal and tender‚ despairing and hopeful‚ spare of language and profoundly moving‚ The Road is a fierce and haunting meditation on the tenuous divide between civilization and savagery‚ and the essential — sometime terrifying — power of filial love. It is a masterpiece.
