Philip Gwyn Jones, Picador Publisher said:
‘Picador is delighted to be publishing new novels this year from one of America's most important living writers. Picador has been McCarthy's proud British publisher for decades, and longed for the arrival of these next two novels. Every lover of Cormac McCarthy's prose will thrill to them, as they explore landscapes and characters and questions and relationships that we have never encountered in his work before. Bobby and Alicia Western have to be two of the most captivating characters in contemporary American literature and it will be an enormous privilege to introduce them to Cormac McCarthy’s legion of readers old and new this autumn.’
Bea Carvalho, Waterstones Head of Fiction said:
‘The release of a new novel from Cormac McCarthy after so many years would have always marked one of the most exciting and longed-for moments in a bookseller’s year, but to be treated to two in such quick succession is a truly astonishing opportunity. We are tremendously excited to read The Passenger and Stella Maris, and can’t wait to start talking about them with our customers.’
