Publisher's 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.
©1979 Cormac McCarthy (P)2012 Recorded Books

What the critics say

Suttree contains a humor that is Faulknerian … and a freakish imaginative flair reminiscent of Flannery O’Connor.” ( Times Literary Supplement, London)

Excellent.

Excellent book, excellent narration. I tried reading this on my own several times but could not get going, unlike McCarthys other books. This narration helped me invest in the story and characters and setting easily, and I look forward to reading the text on my own a without the narration in the future.

Hilarious and Sad.

McCarthy's take on apathy and the odd confidence that comes with it.
it's funny, sad and ever realistic as McCarthy always is
