Dianne Luce, author of Reading the World: Cormac McCarthy's Tennessee Period
'Lydia Cooper brilliantly reads McCarthy's peripatetic novels to reveal a single focused vision, one that exposes the predations of capitalist excess against a fragile ecological balance. McCarthy's very syntax and style, in all its experimental variations, everywhere fixes our gaze on what has been lost (or soon will be). In turn, Cooper's triumph lies in her own ambulatory reading of fictional cars and horses, animate landscapes and insensible figures, Gothic loomings, climate crises, and food webs. One cannot help but leave this book eager to return to a McCarthy seen entirely anew.'
Lee Clark Mitchell, Holmes Professor of Belles-Lettres, Princeton University
'Cormac McCarthy: A Complexity Theory of Literature is a brilliant, elegant, and incisive inquiry into the scientific and philosophical ideas that inform McCarthy's work. Rich with social and political implications in the realm of environmentalism and ecocriticism, the volume moves beyond general themes to advance McCarthy as both prophet and commentator, making his work relevant to a host of perennial and contemporary issues and concerns.'
Steven Frye, Professor and Chair of English, California State University, Bakersfield -- .
