Suttree, by Cormac McCarthy

Tom Sawyer for the damned, or Ulysses in Tennessee.


Suttree

Vintage International, 1979, 471 pages



No discussion of great modern authors is complete without mention of Cormac McCarthy, whose rare and blazing talent makes his every work a true literary event. A grand addition to the American literary canon, Suttree introduces readers to Cornelius Suttree, a man who abandons his affluent family to live among a dissolute array of vagabonds along the Tennessee river.


The very witch of fuck.

Also by Cormac McCarthy: My reviews of Blood Meridian: or The Evening Redness in the West, No Country for Old Men, and The Road.
