Suttree | Cormac McCarthy
post image
Pickpick

Suttree flawlessly grasps the ethos of the quintessential American novel. It seethes Steinbeck, Faulkner, O‘Connor, etc. More a character study presented through a series of vignettes, Suttree can be frustrating in its reluctance to provide any conclusions to the often humorous and engaging stories, or presenting any real plot. But the writing here is masterful, brutal, and beautiful. And like all great American novels, it will leave you in awe.

BC_Dittemore I do need to point out that I listened to this on audiobook. Richard Poe‘s weathered voice was the perfect choice to give life to Suttree and its world-weary characters. 1w

Proud of myself for finally getting another bookshelf and shelving (by genre? alphabetical order? In the end, it was a mix) the piles of books sitting around my apartment. Look at all that floor space now! Had some fun doing it too: spent an entire afternoon and evening revisiting some books I completely forgot I had (e.g. next stop, digging into some Cormac McCarthy).

BookDadGirlDad Beware!!! You will begin to look at your shelves and think "Ya know, if I rearrange a little, I can fit more books on those shelves." ??? 13mo

Saw Rachel speak at UnionAve Bookstore in #Knoxville today. She was charming, sweet, and sincere. I'm not sure I'll read the book, but it is a fascinating story of being duped by a fake heiress and participating with police to nab her former friend. There are a host of stories from various media about Anna Delvey/Sorokin and her attempts to bilk others. I left with admiration for Rachel and applaud her agency to take control of her own story.

rmaclean4 Hey Knoxville!! I love Avenue Books! I thought she was very charming also. 3y

Oh, how Market Square, #Knoxville, #Tennessee, has changed since Cormac McCarthy's description in Suttree. Musicians playing the saw and a steel drum by the suffragists' statue as I set my chair on McCarthy's inscription to watch A Midsummer Night's Dream and eat my gyro from Yassin's, the "nicest place in America." #refugee #Shakespeare https://www.goodmorningamerica.com/living/story/inside-nicest-place-america-refu...

wanderinglynn I love going to Market Square when I go home to visit my mom! They‘ve really made it a nice place. 3y
Bklover I love Market Square! 3y
lynneamch @wanderinglynn @Bklover So cool, right? And, of coarse, Union Ave Books just a block away! 📚😍 3y

This was a fascinating book. Still trying to take it all in. Really unique characters and quite sad at most points. It felt bleak.

DGRachel I think you‘ve just described every Cormac McCarthy book I‘ve read (and I‘ve loved all of them). I haven‘t read this one, though, but good to know it won‘t disappoint. 4y

Making my way slowly through several dense books right now. This is one of them.

Samplergal This sits on my shelf, unread. February feels like a good time to read it. 4y
SoniaC @Samplergal it‘s a slow read but I‘m finally starting to connect with it. 4y
Graywacke Curious how this is going for you 4y
SoniaC @Graywacke it‘s dense but I‘m enjoying it. I‘m in the middle of several so I‘m taking it slow. 4y
Graywacke @SoniaC I noticed you have a lot of different books in your posts. Glad you‘re enjoying. It has hung around for me. 4y
