©1979 Cormac McCarthy (P)2012 Recorded Books
"Suttree contains a humor that is Faulknerian ... and a freakish imaginative flair reminiscent of Flannery O'Connor." (Times Literary Supplement, London)
An evocative tale of the depression and the life of Sutree, who we meet living on a houseboat on the river eeking out a living catching fish and selling what he catches to stay alive. Rich in description of the time and place Cormac Macarthy does what he does best yet again with his gift for bring to life times past and the all kinds of characters who are beliveable and recognizable. A story with pathos and poinient, raw and often uncomfortable in the power of his descriptive narative.
He is undoubtedly a master story teller, this story will move the listener and be prepared to be deeply touched by its rawness.
