1st Print Child Of God Cormac McCarthy Chatto & Windus 1975 UK H/B The Road
1st Print Child Of God Cormac McCarthy Chatto & Windus 1975 UK H/B The Road The Blurb By Cormac McCarthy, the author of the critically acclaimed Border Trilogy, Child of God is a taut, chilling novel that plumbs the depths of human degradation. Lester Ballard, a violent, solitary and introverted young backwoodsman dispossessed on his ancestral land, is released from jail and allowed to haunt the hill country of East Tennessee, preying on the population with his strange lusts. McCarthy transforms commonplace brushes with humanity - in homesteads, stores and in the woods - into stunning scenes of the comic and the grotesque, and as the story hurtles toward its unforgettable conclusion, depicts the most sordid aspects of life with dignity, humour, and characteristic lyrical brilliance. The Book This is a Rare 1st Printing of the 1st UK hardback edition published by Chatto & Windus in 1975. A superb example. Book is Very Near Fine, with just a hint of spotting to top edge, with a little pushing to spine tips. Else, a fine, bright crisp example without markings. In the rare unclipped wrapper with the price of £2.50 to front flap. A crisp & clean Fine example that has some light foxing to flaps and verso.
