True Grit by Charles Portis (1968)
A fun, funny, and fast 215 page read. Decided to read it before the Coens’ remake comes out Christmas.
And that scene, that famous scene, that I know even though I’ve never seen the movie? Dialogue almost verbatim from the book:
Rooster said, “I mean to kill you in one minute, Ned, or see you hanged in Fort Smith at Judge Parker’s convenience! Which will you have?”
Lucky Ned Pepper laughed. He said, “I call that bold talk for a one-eyed fat man!”
Rooster said, “Fill your hand you son of a bitch!”
