Cormac McCarthy / Author Vintage Books USA $6.95 (471p) ISBN 9

Set in Knoxville, Tenn., in the 1950s, this novel tells the story of a man who has repudiated his well-to-do parents, deserted his wife and is now a river fisherman who consorts with robbers, ragmen and other outcasts. ""McCarthy captures these people's lives and speech with a tough, lyric grace,'' PW commented. (October)
