    1. Don t get me wrong, I love McCarthy But the level at which Josyph dotes over him instead of offering critical thought is somewhat childish and annoying There are a couple of good essays in this, including a nice discourse on The Crossing, but overall it feels like a fanboy s excessive and unhealthy gushing over one of today s best living writers Not to mention that maybe 60% of this is actually related to McCarthy, and the rest is abouts and other random stuff.
