Dianne C. Luce was president of the Cormac McCarthy Society from 1998 to 2010 and serves on the editorial board of the Cormac McCarthy Journal. A McCarthy scholar for thirty years, she is coeditor with Edwin T. Arnold of Perspectives on Cormac McCarthy and A Cormac McCarthy Companion: The Border Trilogy.
"In Reading the World, Dianne C. Luce offers an extensive treatment of the southern novels of the National Book Award- and Pulitzer Prize-winning author Cormac McCarthy. Luce's study is as valuable as it is ambitious, blending with precision the local and historical with the universal and philosophical—and thus charting the process by which the literal content of individual experience is employed in McCarthy's fiction to both aesthetic and philosophical ends."—Steven Frye, California State University, Bakersfield, and author of Understanding Cormac McCarthy
"Luce goes well beyond examining the role of place in McCarthy's literary imagination and writing by emphasizing his extensive reading, especially in philosophy. This study reminds one of the powerful criticism that advanced William Faulkner in the 1960–70s. Highly recommended."—Choice
