Cormac McCarthy...

He's an author I haven't read but evidently his words are worth a fortune.
Supposedly he typed five million of them,
all his books written between 1958 and 2009, on this Olivetti Lettera 32 which sold recently for $254,500.
Hell, it doesn't even have spellchek...

  1. The true stick in the ointment of every typewriter. No spell check.... is spell check one word?

  2. What matter spelling when you can write yarns like Cormac McCarthy? Read him, Keith, you will not regret having done so.

  3. Start with "All the Pretty Horses" and go from there. McCarthy is a treasure.

  4. Thanks for the recommendations, I shall get onto it...
