    In the first half of this short novel, Gaines (Catherine Carmier, Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman) makes something poetic out of a melodramatic moment in Southern race relations; in the second half the melodrama more or less takes over, as does a slightly muddled web of themes. Candy Marshall, year-old heir to the rundown Marshall place in s Louisiana farm-country, discovers the dead. This is the second in a series of posts entitled 21st Century Fiction on each entry I’ll be comparing a contemporary novel to its film adaptation. See the first entry here.. If, while watching a movie with your spouse, you like to whisper “that didn’t happen in the book” (and who doesn’t?), then you’ll be sorely disappointed by a screening of No Country for Old Men.

    There are two old men sitting near Fix, named Alphonse and "A-goose" ("Auguste" with a Cajun accent). Fix asks them what they think of the "great All-American." Neither of them do much. One of them shrugs. Claude, one of Gil's other brothers, gets asked what he thinks should happen. All he says is he'll go along with whatever Fix decides.   Llewelyn Moss, hunting antelope near the Rio Grande, instead finds men shot dead, a load of heroin, and more than $2 million in cash. Packing the money out, he knows, will change everything. But only after two more men are murdered does a victim's burning car lead Sheriff Bell to the carnage out in the desert, and he soon realizes how desperately Moss and his young wife need protection.
