New York: Random House, 1968. First edition. Fine/Fine. A Fine copy of the book in like dust jacket. The book has a small owner's name on the front endpaper, otherwise clean, sharp and unread. In a Fine, price-clipped dust jacket with just a few spots where the black jacket is rubbed at the spine ends. A lovely copy of the book. Cormac McCarthy's second novel, published in 1968, "Outer Dark" follows the story of a brother and sister who commit incest - and their subsequent wanderings. His first book, "The Orchard Keeper," had won the 1966 William Faulkner Foundation for notable first novel and McCarthy is currently considered by critic Harold Bloom as one of the four greatest American novel writers working today. "There is not a page of this novel which does not depict swift and significant action. Nor does Mr. McCarthy waste a single word on his character's thoughts. With total objectivity he describes what they do and records their speech. Such discipline comes not only from mastery over words but from an understanding wise enough and compassionate enough to dare tell so abysmally dark a story." (Contemporary New York Times review). Fine in Fine. dust jacket.
