This compelling novel has as its protagonist Cornelius Suttree, living alone and in exile in a disintegrating houseboat on the wrong side of the Tennessee River close by Knoxville. He stays at the edge of an outcast community inhabited by eccentrics, criminals and the poverty-stricken. Rising above the physical and human squalor around him, his detachment and wry humour enable him to survive dereliction and destitution with dignity. 'Suttree marks McCarthy's closest approach to autobiography and is probably the funniest and most unbearably sad of his books' Stanley Booth 'The book comes at us like a horrifying flood. The language licks, batters, wounds -- a poetic, troubled rush of debris ...Cormac McCarthy has little mercy to spare, for his characters or himself. His text is broken, beautiful and ugly in spots ...Suttree is like a good, long scream in the ear.' Jerome Charyn, New York Times

Mehr über den Autor

Cormac McCarthy wurde 1933 in Rhodes Island geboren und wuchs in Knoxville/Tennessee, auf. Für seine Bücher wurde er u. a. mit dem William Faulkner Award, dem American Academy Award, dem National Book Award und dem National Book Crities Circle Award ausgezeichnet. 2007 erhielt er für seinen epochalen Roman Die Straße den Pulitzerpreis. McCarthy lebt heute in El Paso, Texas. "Kein Land für alte Männer" wurde von den Coen-Brüdern fürs Kino verfilmt.



""Suttree" contains a humour that is Faulknerian in its gentle wryness, and a freakish imaginative flair reminiscent of Flannery O'Connor." --"The Times Literary Supplement" (London) "All of McCarthy's books present the reviewer with the same welcome difficulty. They are so good that one can hardly say how good they really are. . . . "Suttree" may be his magnum opus. Its protagonist, Cornelius Suttree, has forsaken his prominent family to live in a dilapidated houseboat among the inhabitants of the demimonde along the banks of the Tennessee River. His associates are mostly criminals of one sort or another, and Suttree is, to say the least, estranged from what might be called normal society. But he is so involved with life (and it with him) that when in the end he takes his leave, the reader's heart goes with him. "Suttree" is probably the funniest and most unbearably sad of McCarthy's books . . . which seem to me unsurpassed in American literature." --Stanley Booth


Cornelius Suttree renounces the values held by his prominent family to live in a dilapidated houseboat among the depraved residents on the banks of the Tennessee River. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

3.0 von 5 Sternen get ye some plot structure 22. März 1999
Von Ein Kunde
I love C. McCarthy, but I was a little disappointed with this book. I've read the first two volumes of The Border Trilogy, and I feel that McCarthy's capacity for transcendent mythic prose is better suited to the stark landscape of Mexico and Texas, rather than this grimy Southern river life. In the border novels his lack of narrative structure works well as a picture of existential drift. His heroes need to be on the road someplace, rather than stranded in a town. I wanted Harrogate to be the hero, and I wanted him to steal a car and drive to Mexico.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Powerfully written 18. Mai 2000
McCarthy's style of writing is difficult at first, because he is quite poetic and his vocabulary is freaking huge. And he often doesn't obey grammatical rules. I found it helped to read particularly difficult passages out loud -- they're worth understanding.
The novel is long, but good. It is an episodic tale of Cornelius Suttree, A fisherman/bum along the shores of some river in Knoxville, Tennessee. He has left a family of influence to live in this poverty, though that's not as important to the book as it sounds. While the book is rather episodic -- sometimes it's hard to connect one chapter to the next in any meaningful form -- the characters are vivid, and the episodes are imaginative and often funny -- or sad.
This book is powerfully written, and an enjoyable read. I can't wait to read more McCarthy -- or to read this one over again.
A writing sample:
"He woke with the undersides of his eyelids inflamed by the high sun's hammering, looked up to a bland and chinablue sky traversed by lightwires. A big lemoncolored cat watched him from the top of a woodstove. He turned his head to see it better and it elongated itself like hot taffy down the side of the stove and vanished headfirst in the earth without a sound. Suttree lay with his hands palm up at his sides in an attitude of frailty beheld and the stink that fouled the air was he himself. He closed his eyes and moaned. A hot breeze was coming across the barren waste of burnt weeds and rubble like a whiff of battlesmoke. Some starling had alighted on a wire overhaed in perfect progression like a peice of knotted string fallen slantwise. Crooning, hooked wings. Foul yellow mutes came squeezing from under their fanned tails. He sat up slowly, putting a hand over his eyes. The birds flew.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Beautiful Ugliness 28. Juli 1999
Von Ein Kunde
This is a most extraordinary novel, densely packed with dark and dire images, by turns brutal and tender. It is elegant, down and dirty, occasionally shocking and surprisingly funny. I don't know when I have read more beautiful prose describing more debased circumstances than in Suttree.
I was introduced to this novel by a close friend who was so slammed by the impact of the first page that she had to put it down for a week just to let it sink in. I have to admit, I re-read the first 3 pages about a dozen times throughout my reading of the novel. They do pack a wallop. Actually, there are several passages in the book that so floored me I had to go back and re-read them.
The language of this tale is incredible, carefully wrought, full of fantastic words (keep a dictionary close by.) At times laconic, at times incredibly detailed. And at times so unrelentingly down and out you just have to laugh. Harold Pinter once praised Samuel Beckett saying that he 'leaves no stone unturned, no maggot lonely.' I'd say the same for McCarthy in this novel. Who else could generate so much sympathy for a melon-humping hayseed dork like Gene Harrogate? Or any other of the motley assemblage with whom Suttree inexplicably chooses to fraternize.
I don't want to ruin any surprises, so I'll just assure you that Suttree's immersion in debauchery and desolation is not for its own sake. The book has a heart. The book has soul to burn. This is just the best damned novel I've read in years. Maybe ever. Relish it.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Suttree: an existentialist's search for meaning. 18. Juli 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Cormac McCarthy treats the reader to a splendid tale of one man's search for meaning. Cornelius Suttree, a college-educated man recently released from prison, searches for meaning in an unforgiving and absurd world. The reader -- as well as characters in the book -- quickly realizes that Suttree is out of place among the people with whom he lives. His failure to break out is caused by his inability to find purpose or meaning in life, and it is this search which most fascinates me. McCarthy masterfully conveys the complicated struggle within Suttree's mind: a picaresque journey of indecision and enervation.
The author's accurate rendition of speech patterns and regionalisms animate characters like the ragman and Reese like few depictions I've ever read.
At times the book becomes too impressionistic, whole pages devoted to a dizzying stream of images that I found difficult to read. In addition, I recognized unusual words repeated throughout the book, but despi! te these few criticisms, Suttree is an unforgettable read!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Moonshine, trotlines, waste... 1. September 1998
Rich, biblical prose. Set alongside big old river. All about bums. There's a hilarious wacky kid the hero tries to take care of sometimes. But the best thing about this book is the splo. The best descriptions of shine in literature. Oily, with floaters, with bums eyeing it and knowing what will happen once they get started. Also I've never seen trotlines in lit before. Check out the way people live off the land who live off the chart below any laughable poverty lines (it would be wealth to them). Juglines to haul in catfish for the market. Wacky schemes to get rich and finally beat the wolf away from the door for a change. Even though they all know it'll be gone in a week. Desparate family gives it one last shot before our hero leaves them for nowhere. Binges, hangovers and sweat. Best depiction of The Marginal, those who live between the cracks, I've seen. One guy lives in a junkyard who can't be bothered, who suffers to hear yet another wild idea, but gets sucked into it anyway....
