NEW YORK – Cormac McCarthy has two novels out this fall, his first novels to be published since 2006’s Pulitzer Prize-winning The Road.
Publisher Alfred A. Knopf announced Tuesday that “The Passenger,” a long-rumored novel about “morals and science” and “the legacy of sin” that McCarthy reportedly began decades ago, would be released on October 25. Stella Maris, a prequel to The Passenger set eight years earlier, is slated for November 22nd. The two works will be available as a box set on December 6th.
“We have a plane crash, a trove of gold coins buried deep underground and hidden in copper pipes, a rare Amati violin that goes missing, an abandoned oil rig in the middle of the ocean, and an Italian race car seized by the IRS – an absolutely compelling story,” said McCarthy’s editor at Knopf, Jenny Jackson, in a statement.
McCarthy, 88, is known for western and apocalyptic novels like The Road, Blood Meridian and No Country for Old Men, which were adapted by the Coen brothers into an Academy Award-winning film of the same name. His other honors include a National Book Award and a National Book Critics Circle Award for All the Pretty Horses.
