Suttree’s Knoxville 

Heading to Knoxville in the morning on the drive back to Pensacola after spending Thanksgiving week visiting the in-laws in Cincinnati. 

I’ve never been to Knoxville, but feel like I know the city pretty well after reading Cormac McCarthy’s early works, especially Suttree on numerous occasions. I’m excited to see these places in person. While googling around on how to locate the spots mentioned in the book I came across a great site. Someone has already done all the work. 

Check out Wes Morgan’s Searching for Suttree if you’re in the area. I’ll give my own first person feedback of the city after spending the day on the trail of Cornelius Suttree. If you have any other advice or must-do’s while there, please share.
