Cormac McCarthy’s typewriter sells for $254,000


Cormac McCarthy’s battered old Olivetti typewriter sold on Friday for $254,500 at auction. Yes, that’s correct – $254,000. Perhaps the buyer got mixed up and thought he was buying Cormac McCarthy himself. The person who paid $8,167 for George Bernard Shaw’s typewriter on AbeBooks last year got a bargain in comparison to this sale.
