I am very interested in hearing more about them, though, so anyone out there know about these "Quest" novels?
We were discussing these on the other thread, and someone called Cormac McCarthy's "Border Trilogy" a quest novel, but it's really not. It's Literature, big L. Try it, you'll never be the same.
All the Pretty Horses
City of the Plain = trilogy.
"Quest" here is a category, not a series. Any fiction or nonfiction with a hero(es) on a journey of discovery. "Huckleberry Finn" is an example; Jim is in search of freedom, and Huck is in search of adulthood (in effect.)
