About This Item

New York: Random House, 1973. First Edition. Near Fine/Near Fine. First edition, first printing. Signed by the author on the title page. Bound in publisher's red paper-covered boards over black cloth spine lettered in gilt. Near Fine, with light bruising and light fading to cloth at spine ends.

Synopsis

Child of God is the third novel by American author Cormac McCarthy. Though the novel received critical praise, it was not a financial success. Like its predecessor, Outer Dark, Child of God established McCarthy's interest in using extreme isolation, perversity, and violence to represent normal human experience.
