9781468306293: True Grit: A Novel
True Grit tells the story of Mattie Ross, who is just fourteen years of age when a coward going by the name of Tom Chaney shoots her father down in Fort Smith, Arkansas, and robs him of his life, his horse, and $150 in cash. Mattie leaves home to avenge her father’s blood. With the one-eyed Rooster Cogburn, the meanest available U.S. Marshal, by her side, Mattie pursues the homicide into Indian Territory. True Grit is eccentric, cool, straight, and unflinching, like Mattie herself. From a writer of true status, this is an American classic through and through. This mass-market edition includes an afterword by award-winning Donna Tartt, author of The Little Friend and The Secret History.

Review:
“A wonderful book.... That’s really what the Coens are referencing, and that’s what I’m doing as well”
—Jeff Bridges

“An epic and a legend.”
The Washington Post

“Like Mark Twain’s Huckleberry Finn and Thomas Berger’s Little Big Man, Charles Portis’s True Grit captures the na´ve elegance of the American voice.”
—Jonathan Lethem

“An instant classic....Read it and have the most fun you’ve had reading a novel in years, maybe decades.” —Newsday

“Skillfully constructed, a comic tour de force.” —The New York Times Book Review

“I loved that book. Charles Portis got a real Mark Twain feeling, the cynicism and the humor. I tried to buy the book myself.”
—John Wayne

“Mattie Ross is an authentic heroine––lean, mean, articulate and downright inspirational”
The Washington Times
