Talking Location With author JS Monroe – West Penwith, CORNWALL
The Orchard Keeper
Set in a small, remote community in rural Tennessee in the years between the two world wars, The Orchard Keeper is a classic from one of America’s finest and most celebrated authors. It tells of John Wesley Rattner, a young boy, and Marion Sylder, an outlas and bootlegger, who, unbeknownst to either of them, has killed the boy’s father. Cormac McCarthy’s debut nove is a magnificent evocation of an American landscape, and of a lost American time.
