The New Yorker has published an excerpt of Cormac McCarthy’s script for The Counselor, Ridley Scott’s new film
An excerpt of the excerpt:
the kid rakes an object from under the paper into his helmet and puts down the paper and stands and puts the helmet under his arm and crosses the plaza to his bike and puts his foot over the bike and starts it and pulls his gloves from the helmet and lays them on the tank in front of him and pulls on the helmet and fastens the strap and then pulls on the gloves and kicks back the stand and pulls away into the traffic.
Is that full stop the world’s loneliest punctuation mark?
