Summary:

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. "Suttree contains a humor that is Faulknerian ... and a freakish imaginative flair reminiscent of Flannery O'Connor."-Times Literary Supplement (London)

    Quite simply, my favourite novel. Dark, desperate and tragic. A timeless narrative as true today as it was when written and when the novel is set. 1950's. Poetic, haunting, and reflective. Torn from the depths of a troubled soul, a depiction of a man who has resigned himself to the simplicity of suffering and his wallowing in it.
