Description

By the author of Blood Meridian and All the Pretty Horses, Suttree is the story of Cornelius Suttree, who has forsaken a life of privilege with his prominent family to live in a dilapidated houseboat on the Tennessee River near Knoxville.  Remaining on the margins of the outcast community there--a brilliantly imagined collection of eccentrics, criminals, and squatters--he rises above the physical and human squalor with detachment, humor, and dignity.

    The textures and images conjured by this tale demonstrate McCarthy's mastery of language and the odd lot of characters make it just plain fun!

    Suttree shows what an amazing writer Cormac McCarthy is. A depressing tale of unrealized potential is still a worthy read as you journey through a life of tragedy, loyalty, triumph, and despair.
