Blood Meridian, or The Evening Redness in the West.
by McCarthy, Cormac
New York: Random House, 1985. Uncorrected proof of first edition of the author's fifth novel. Octavo, original yellow wrappers. Signed by Cormac McCarthy on the title page. In near fine condition. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. Rare, especially signed. "Blood Meridian seems to me the authentic American apocalyptic novel, more relevant even in 2000 than it was fifteen years ago. The fulfilled renown of Moby-Dick and of As I Lay Dying is augmented by Blood Meridian, since Cormac McCarthy is the worthy disciple both of Melville and of Faulkner. I venture that no other living American novelist, not even Pynchon, has given us a book as strong and memorable as Blood Meridian" (Harold Bloom). McCarthy can only be compared with our greatest writers, with Melville and Faulkner, and this is his masterpiece" (Michael Herr). (Inventory #: 20022)
