A little help here (No Country For Old Men)
So I'm going through the a book of short stories titled 'Inspecting the Vaults' by Eric McCormack (thanks a ton Marsjams13, and a merry Christmas to you!!!) and I find a 4 page short entitled "No Country For Old Men" in which an old man at a party is remembering and retelling a story from his days in the war in which he wrongly murders a German soldier. At first I thought the title was coincidental or that this was a popular phrase that I had somehow missed out on until I saw this on the NCFOM (by Cormac McCarthy) Wikipedia page...
[QUOTE]Sheriff Ed Tom Bell investigates the drug crime while trying to protect Moss and his young wife with the aid of other law enforcement. [B][I]The sheriff is haunted by his actions in World War II, for which he received the Bronze Star Medal. Now in his late 50s, Bell has spent most of his life attempting to make up for the incident when he was a 21 year-old soldier.[/B][/I] He makes it his quest to resolve the case and save Moss.[/QUOTE]
Can someone explain the correlation between these two stories, these two authors. Is all of this common knowledge or did I stumble upon something? Which one came first? Which one is based on which one?
A little help please!!!!
