Deluxe signed limited edition of this neo-Western thriller, one of McCarthy's best-known works and the basis for an Oscar-winning film.
"Every moment in your life is a turning and every one a choosing. Somewhere you made a choice. All followed to this."
Known for his "brutal and spare" narratives, Cormac McCarthy has been called "one of the greatest living novelists" (Cowley, THE GUARDIAN). NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN is a major work of the McCarthy canon, exploring fate and futility in the aftermath of a drug deal gone wrong in rural west Texas.
A MacArthur Fellow, a Pulitzer Prize-winner, and National Book Award-winner, McCarthy's reputation has been extended further with the success of the Coen brothers' Hollywood adaptation of NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN, which won four Academy Awards including Best Picture. This deluxe edition is highly sought for its beauty, a highlight for any McCarthy collection.
