Cormac McCarthy’s Typewriter Dies After 50 Years and 5 Million Words


Cormac McCarthy has written more than a dozen novels, several screenplays, two plays, two short stories, countless drafts, letters and more — and nearly every one of them was tapped out on a portable Olivetti manual typewriter he bought in a Knoxville, Tenn., pawnshop around 1963 for $50.

It has never been serviced or cleaned other than blowing out the dust with a service station hose. … I have typed on this typewriter every book I have written including three not published. Including all drafts and correspondence I would put this at about five million words over a period of 50 years.

Original NY Times article.

(Friends &) Family Tech Support

I’ve been a hardworking doobie for some time, doing well and doing good, so when I discovered Nerd Merit Badges I eagerly checked to see what recognition, if any, my life experience might have qualified me to earn. And, I found this one, “Family Tech Support.”
