Cormac McCarthy (on Oprah)

Cormac McCarthy's only television interview was of course with Oprah. He's a strange pick for the Oprah Book Club, since the novel (The Road) is a touching story about a father and son trying to survive in a postapocalyptic future America (complete with cannibals).

A rather bland interview, owing partly to McCarthy's indifference and Oprah's utter lack of interviewing skill. Nevertheless, a great quote from McCarthy (on becoming one of the world's greatest living novelists):

I always knew that I didn’t want to work
