Doug Hart made a comment on his review of Suttree
Suttree by Cormac McCarthy
" Supposedly McCarthy's magnum opus. I expected to be impressed but the result read less like a master work and more like a collection of outtakes from ...more "

Tushnet kills it as usual. Probably the best book out there on the current Court.

William T. Vollmann
“I just make the best book that I can and try to not worry about audience or if it will sell. The odds are against you, so why abuse your talent for the sake of a chimera? The only real pleasure for me in writing comes from pleasing myself. What readers think is interesting and illuminating (and it may even be correct), but that is nothing compared to the excitement of seeing a world develop. Besides, even though I like most individuals I meet, I have a pretty low opinion of people in general. So if I were to write for people in general, I would have to drastically lower my estimation of the intelligence of my reader. Rather than doing that, I write the way it seems the book has to appear. I don’t think that’s egotistic. There are often things I would like to include in my books—things about me personally and other materials—that I feel I have to leave out because they aren’t relevant to the book. I’m fairly ruthless along those lines, because I try to let nothing come in the way of what’s best for the book. If that means that the book won’t sell or that a publisher won’t buy it, then that’s my problem. I’ll suffer for that, but I won’t let the book suffer for it.”
William T. Vollmann

“For whom is the funhouse fun? Perhaps for lovers. For Ambrose it is a place of fear and confusion. ”
