Well, it's about a lot of things I guess, including a meditation on the US and what is has become and life on the border, in Texas at least 50 years ago. I recall the line that went something like 'In those days you could ride a horse clear all the way to Mexico'. These 2 brothers in their late teens who live there on a farm do so in the aftermath of the Mexican Revolution (whenever that was). There are long cinematic conversations between one of these young men and priests in churches ruined by revolution and earthquake on the meaning of life and generally skeptical and despairing women. He has a Biblical style with a minimum of adjectives and adverbs.

One of my all time favourite books.
