A Lot of Money for a Busted Typewriter

That old, beat-up typewriter belonging to Cormac McCarthy, the author of The Road and No Country for Old Men, ended up selling at auction for $254,500 — way, way, way more than anyone predicted.

The New York Times has the story here. The article is worth reading — there’s a great quote from the book dealer who handled the auction.

At the time we first mentioned it (here on December 2nd), the experts said it may go for $15,000 or $20,000.
