About this Item

First Edition. 8vo, publisher’s original cloth backed black boards, in the illustrated dustjacket with Publisher’s Weekly blurb and first letter on front flap in colour. 302 pp. A very fine copy in a very fine dustjacket, as pristine and mint. FIRST EDITION. Basis for the movie featuring Matt Damon, Henry Thomas, and Penélope Cruz. First volume in The Border Trilogy. Winner of both the National Book Award and the National Book Critics Circle Award. Its romanticism, in contrast to the bleakness of McCarthy's earlier work, brought the writer much public attention. The novel tells of John Grady Cole, a sixteen year old cowboy who grew up on his grandfather's ranch in San Angelo, Texas. All the books of the "Border Trilogy" are written in an unconventional format which omits traditional Western punctuation such as quotation marks and makes use of polysyndetic syntax in a manner similar to that of Ernest Hemingway.
