Outer Dark.
Random House, New York 1968 - First edition of the author's second novel. Octavo, original half cloth. Inscribed by Cormac McCarthy. Fine in a fine price-clipped dust jacket. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. A very sharp copy, uncommon signed and inscribed. Outer Dark is a novel at once mythic and starkly evocative, set in an unspecified place in Appalachia sometime around the turn of the century. A woman bears her brother's child, a boy; the brother leaves the baby in the woods and tells her he died of natural causes. Discovering her brother's lie, she sets forth alone to find her son. Both brother and sister wander separately through a countryside being scourged by three terrifying and elusive strangers, headlong toward an eerie, apocalyptic resolution. "A profound parable that ultimately speaks to any society in any time" (Time). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
