Suttree (1979) by Cormac McCarthy

A True Work of Art

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Cormac‘s longest book at the time of its publication in 1979, the reader is taken along with Suttree‘s journey through drunken nights among sots and miscreants and murderers in Knoxville and along the river in turpitude and his final attempts to save his soul.

All I can say is: Read it. You won’t be disappointed.

Suttree is a brilliant work of art.
