cormac11Suttree is McCarthy’s semi autobiographical novel set in Knoxville, Tennessee. The novel follows Cornelius Suttree, who has repudiated his former life of privilege to become a fisherman on the Tennessee River. The novel has a fragmented structure with many flashbacks and shifts in grammatical person. Suttree has been compared to James Joyce’s Ulysses, John Steinbeck’s Cannery Row, and Mark Twain’s Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Suttree was written over a 30 year span and is a departure from his previous novels, being much longer, more sprawling in structure, and perhaps McCarthy’s most humorous novel.

Description: First printing of the first edition. SIGNED by McCarthy. A nice copy of a very scarce signed McCarthy title.
