First printing of McCarthy's brutal modern classic, a beautiful copy.
Fine in fine jacket.
"Even a nonbeliever might find it useful to model himself after God. Very useful, in fact."
McCarthy's stunning Western started life as a screenplay, was rewritten as a novel, and was ultimately adapted into one of the more stunning Coen Brothers films of the last twenty years. Harold Bloom, unable to discern a satisfying moral argument in its wanton coin-flipping, didn't like it, which can only be taken as a glowing recommendation. A beautiful copy of this fully realized masterwork of bleakness and pitiless doom.
