Bookivorous

I read books, I write about books, I would probably marry a book if I could find one who liked me enough. Three words to describe me mature, irresponsible, contradictory, unreliable...oh...that's four...

Suttree

Suttree - Cormac McCarthy Before 'The Road' and 'No Country For Old Men' there was....well this. McCarthy does Southern Gothic and probably wishes he hadn't because it doesn't fit at all with the tough Western image. Suttree is a drifter, scion of an ancient Southern family he has rejected. Think Steinbeck without the humour and you'd be pretty close.
