About This Item

New York: Random House/ Modern Library, 2010. First edition of the 25th anniversary of the author's classic novel. Octavo, original half cloth. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the half-title page, "For Roger Andrews Best Wishes Cormac McCarthy." The recipient and McCarthy were friends in El Paso, Texas. Fine in a fine dust jacket. Jacket design by Richard Adelson. Jacket painting by Salvador Dali. 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).
