SIGNED, NUMBERED, QUARTER LEATHER LIMITED EDITION: 55 of just 325. Trice issued two limited editions of this novel; this is one of only three hundred and twenty five of a special worldwide edition. All were sold rapidly after the announcement of availability. Leather spine which wraps around the edges, with the title gilded, and with beautifully hand marbled boards front and back. Housed in a substantial perfect deep scarlet cloth slipcase, with a gilded version of Cormac McCarthy's signature. A worthily substantial and handsome edition of this remarkable novel, and yet another example from McCarthy of a book that does not conform to expectations. He is a supreme talent, creating the novels that will define us all in time. He is also, as is now well known, a reluctant signer. This is a stunning production from a company that takes the production of its books extremely seriously. This is assuredly a major collectable edition of Cormac McCarthy's work. Certainly, it is a gorgeously aesthetic one, too. The book reads like a movie, and it's no surprise the Coen Brothers fully appreciated the qualities of the author's dialogue and ended up using most of it. It is rare indeed to have a screenplay that contains such a high proportion of the written work. The film, of course, became a distinguished Oscar winning movie, and someone described it as 'The finest movie I expect to see this year'. So this very special edition is now a sought after rarity, and even more so because there are never going to be more copies precisely like these. This new copy has been opened only to check it out. Yes, the signature is there; yes, the number is filled in; and finally I opened it so I can look at it with sheer lust. Another little consideration is the quarter leather binding; leather is not too fond of an airless environment, and this copy is therefore offered without the covering seal. A tremendous book for the numerous dedicated enthusiasts of this author, as well as any collector of fine bindings. As this great writer goes on accumulating awards and prizes the message is getting through. Two Pulitzers are already there. Will there be a Nobel as well? Certainly, this particular Trice production is the one that most suits the dedicated Cormac collector. It is an outstanding example of fine book production, even from this highly respectable small press. It will stand as a benchmark for all serious pursuers of Comackiana. Quite frankly, this edition will bring the book lust out in whoever buys it. The great man is mean signer, as mentioned, and this means the pursuit of signed copies is getting tougher all the time. This example is simply extraordinary. Extra postage and insurance will be required. Language: eng Language: eng 0.0 Language: eng 0.0 Language: eng 0.0. Buchnummer des Verkäufers ABE-1174162344

Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

In his blistering new novel, Cormac McCarthy returns to the Texas-Mexico border, setting of his famed Border Trilogy. The time is our own, when rustlers have given way to drug-runners and small towns have become free-fire zones.

One day, a good old boy named Llewellyn Moss finds a pickup truck surrounded by a bodyguard of dead men. A load of heroin and two million dollars in cash are still in the back. When Moss takes the money, he sets off a chain reaction of catastrophic violence that not even the law–in the person of aging, disillusioned Sheriff Bell–can contain.

As Moss tries to evade his pursuers–in particular a mysterious mastermind who flips coins for human lives–McCarthy simultaneously strips down the American crime novel and broadens its concerns to encompass themes as ancient as the Bible and as bloodily contemporary as this morning’s headlines.
No Country for Old Men is a triumph.
