Cormac McCarthy Is Working on a New Book

By Dianna Dilworth 

Author Cormac McCarthy is working on a new novel.

The Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Road, revealed the new work which is entitled, The Passenger, at an event hosted by The Lannan Foundation in Santa Fe, N.M. Newsweek has the scoop:

While academics and critics have long praised his work, the legendary author keeps a low profile, spending most of his time at a science and mathematics think tank in New Mexico, the Santa Fe Institute (SFI), where he is a trustee. Organizers at SFI confirmed to Newsweek that the novel will be released in 2016, though McCarthy’s agent and publishers declined to comment on the status of the book.
