About this Item

"MCCARTHY, Cormac. Suttree. New York: Random House, (1979). Octavo, original half black cloth, original dust jacket. $3500.First edition of McCarthy s celebrated, searing, semi-autobiographical novel "like a good, long scream in the ear" in beautiful condition. Considered by many McCarthy's finest novel, Suttree features "a sensitive and mature protagonist, unlike any other in McCarthy's work Part Stephen Daedalus, part Prince Hal he is also McCarthy, the willful outcast" (New York Times). Like so much of McCarthy's fiction, the book exemplifies what Saul Bellow (who sat on the committee that awarded McCarthy his 1981 MacArthur Fellowship) called the writer's "absolutely overpowering use of language, his life-giving and death-dealing sentences." In his contemporary review, Jerome Charyn said Suttree's language "licks, batters, wounds a poetic, troubled rush of debris [McCarthy's] text is broken, beautiful and ugly in spots Suttree is like a good, long scream in the ear." Although his fourth novel to be published, McCarthy began work on Suttree well before his first, The Orchard Keeper, saw print in 1965. This copy not one of the frequently found remaindered copies. Privratsky, 27. Small crease to rear flap of dust jacket. A beautiful copy in fine condition. Scarce.". Bookseller Inventory # 107156
