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

Wow - this really is something
I've tried reading this a couple of times and it's too much to take in off the page, the words come like a flood and are very small print! The audiobook made it much more digestible, and Poe is a terrific narrator. There are so many great characters in this book, so many great scenes, such vivid language and description, and the dialogue is (as you'd expect from McCarthy) full of warmth, humour, truth and brutality.
I've never encountered anything-else like it.
If I could find a spare 20 hours then yes :)
One I'll definitely listen to again.
