From the bestselling author of The Passenger and the Pulitzer Prize–winning novel The Road, here is the story of Cornelius Suttree, who has forsaken a life of privilege with his prominent family to live in a dilapidated houseboat on the Tennessee River near Knoxville.

Remaining on the margins of the outcast community there—a brilliantly imagined collection of eccentrics, criminals, and squatters—he rises above the physical and human squalor with detachment, humor, and dignity.

Look for Cormac McCarthy's latest bestselling novels, The Passenger and Stella Maris.

What People are Saying About This

Stanley Booth

Suttree may be [McCarthy's] magnum opus…[It is] probably the funniest and most unbearably sad of [his] books…which seemed to me unsurpassed in American literature.
