True Grit

50th Anniversary Edition

The most famous novel by Charles Portis, True Grit is a rousing frontier adventure tale in which fourteen-year-old Mattie Ross seeks to avenge her father's murder by the coward Tom Chaney with the aid of the mean and one-eyed US marshal named Rooster Cogburn. A finely crafted novel brimming with mastery, humor, and epic sweep, it's no surprise it's a favorite of writers as wide ranging as Mary Roach and Anthony Bourdain to Jonathan Lethem and Bob Odenkirk. The book has inspired two award-winning films--the original version and the wildly acclaimed remake by Joel and Ethan Coen--and Overlook's movie tie-in edition to the Coen brothers' film went on to become a #1 New York Times bestseller.Now, to mark the 50th anniversary of the publication of this true American classic, Overlook is releasing a glorious new edition of True Grit in a deluxe flapped paperback format featuring specially-commissioned cover artwork. With new critical essays on Portis and his seminal work by New York Times bestselling author Jacquelyn Mitchard and writer Jay Jennings, editor of the collection Escape Velocity: A Charles Portis Miscellany, also published by Overlook; an insightful introduction by Roy Blount, Jr., acclaimed author and friend to Charles Portis; and an afterword by Donna Tartt, this anniversary edition of True Grit is the ultimate celebration of an American classic.
