    Description

    Cormac McCarthy Blood Meridian Or The Evening Redness in the West. (New York: Random House, 1985), first edition, 337 pages, red cloth with gilt lettering on spine, 8vo (5.75" x 8.5"), dust jacket (in protective mylar). Having received little attention at the time of publication, Blood Meridian is now considered Cormac McCarthy's crowning achievement, which is high praise for the author of Suttree and All the Pretty Horses. Titan of literary criticism Harold Bloom praised the novel as one of the finest of the twentieth century, and perhaps the best novel by a living American writer. Known today as much for its unflinching violence as its magisterial prose, Blood Meridian has staked a firm claim in the roll call of great modern fiction and is a grand adventure into the dark heart of the American West. This copy is in very good condition with some very minor rubbing to the dust jacket.
