About This Item

New Orleans: B. E. Trice, 2005. Fine.. Deluxe signed limited edition of this neo-Western thriller, one of McCarthy's best-known works and the basis for an Oscar-winning film. Known for his "brutal and spare" narratives, Cormac McCarthy has been called "one of the greatest living novelists" (Cowley, THE GUARDIAN). NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN is a major work of the McCarthy canon, exploring fate and futility in the aftermath of a drug deal gone wrong in rural west Texas.
A MacArthur Fellow, a Pulitzer Prize-winner, and National Book Award-winner, McCarthy's reputation has been extended further with the success of the Coen brothers' Hollywood adaptation of NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN, which won four Academy Awards including Best Picture. This deluxe edition is highly sought for its beauty, a highlight for any McCarthy collection. 8.75'' x 5.5''. Original half burgundy leather with marbled boards, gilt lettering to spine. Brown endpapers. 310 pages. Signed by McCarthy and numbered 25 to edition page. In original burgundy cloth slipcase. A sharp copy.

Synopsis

No Country for Old Men is a 2005 novel by American author Cormac McCarthy. Set along the United States and Mexico border in 1980, the story concerns an illicit drug deal gone wrong in a remote desert location. The title comes from the poem "Sailing to Byzantium" by William Butler Yeats. The book was adapted into the 2007 film No Country for Old Men, which won four Academy Awards, including Best Picture.
