A man is severely injured in a mysterious accident, receives an outrageous sum in legal compensation, and has no idea what to do with it. Then, one night, an ordinary sight sets off a series of bizarre visions he can’t quite place. How he goes about bringing his visions to life---and what happens afterward---makes for one of the most riveting, complex, and unusual novels in recent memory.

"McCarthy's evocation of the narrator's absorption in his fantasy world as it cascades out of control is brilliant." (Publishers Weekly)
I thought the reading of this novel was a perfect match for the mundane nuances this book was repeatedly describing and culminating in the unsuspected climax.
The twist in this novel was unexpected and a surprise.
What a waste of time. I have tried to get through the whole thing but couldn't, so there is a possibility that I have missed some great wisdom being revealed at the end. My loss. Lol
