Ivesian Arts Publishing's premiere offering. The Wrong Reader's Guide to Cormac McCarthy. Is an impassioned tribute to one of the most popular and enduring novels by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Cormac McCarthy.
From his provocative reflection on the importance of McCarthy's dramatic prose-poetry in "How Cormac McCarthy Saved Civilization, " to close readings of small moments that open up worlds of discovery, Josyph changes our perspective on this seminal work by one of our greatest living authors. In what he calls "a reader's memoir, " Josyph invites noted McCarthy scholars such as Marty Priola and Wesley Morgan, as well as McCarthy's award-winning Portuguese translator Paolo Faria, to enrich his investigations with their expertise and insights. How is the hero of the novel like Shakespeare's Hamlet? Is it possible he is more a Comanche than a cowboy? Can a sympathetic protagonist be equally heroic and self-destructive?Exactly what sort of town is he leaving? How do film and audio renderings of McCarthy contribute to understanding his text? In answering such questions, Josyph raises others as he-a native New Yorker-walks his great city and also travels to significant locations in the novel, such as San Angelo, Texas, where the story begins. The Wrong Reader's Guide to Cormac McCarthy: All the Pretty Horses includes 14 color illustrations by the author. Adventures in Reading Cormac McCarthy.

For experienced practitioners and well-read fans it unlocks dynamic, disparate terrain. An engaging addition to the ongoing McCarthy conversation, the book is surprising and unique in the best possible ways. Josyph takes an aggressively unconventional approach to McCarthy's work, combining elements of travelogue, interview and memoir.. The artist, playwright, director and actor Peter Josyph has produced an idiosyncratic and impressionistic text, a series of riffs, dialogues, anecdotes and prose poems.. Josyph shows himself capable of discriminating, and even irreverent, contemplation of his hero's corpus.. Forcefully, he makes his case for a canon within the McCarthy canon.. For Josyph, text brings you to object; this, he claims, is the point of literature,'to touch something you never expected to find. Peter Josyph has long been an unmistakable figure, a force of nature, in McCarthy circles. As with everything Peter Josyph produces, this is meticulously researched and beautifully written. The book reveals the fascinating engagement of one artist with another.. This is literary criticism of the old school: wonderfully well informed by culture broadly, grounded in reality, accessible, and a real pleasure to read.
