New York; (2006): Vintage International/Random House. First Edition. Octavo. Item #027522
143 pages. Issued only in soft cover. Originally, presented by the Steppenwolf Theatre of Chicago. The film version with Tommy Lee Jones and Samuel L. Jackson has the crisp dialogue that McCarthy is known for. Here there is a near suicide by a white professor whose life seems so empty while the ex-con black man has found in his evangelical faith something of value. Like Suttree, it raises great philosophical questions which have no simple answers. A fine copy bound in black stiff paper wraps lettered in white and decorated with two suns in yellow, spine red with lettering in red and black.
