Suttree is a semi-autobiographical novel by Cormac McCarthy, published in 1979. Set in 1951 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 called “a doomed Huckleberry Finn” by Jerome Charyn. Suttree was written over a 20-year span and is a departure from McCarthy’s previous novels, being much longer, more sprawling in structure, and perhaps his most humorous.
The novel begins with Suttree observing police as they pull a suicide victim from the river. Suttree is living alone in a houseboat, on the fringes of society on the Tennessee River, earning money by fishing for the occasional catfish. He has left a life of luxury, rejecting his parents’ influence, and abandoning his wife and young son.
