Imprint: Picador


An appealing piece of work . . . gripping, with plenty of reflection and evocation
The Passenger is like a submerged ship itself; a gorgeous ruin in the shape of a hardboiled noir thriller . . . What a glorious sunset song . . . It’s rich and it’s strange, mercurial and melancholic
A moving and characteristically disconcerting addition to the oeuvre of one of America’s greatest writers
[A] gripping story, written in McCarthy’s trademark acerbic style
