Sebastian Junger's 6 favorite books

Sebastian Junger's new book is Tribe: On Homecoming and Belonging. One of his six favorite books, as shared at The Week magazine:
Suttree by Cormac McCarthy

A former professor living on a Tennessee River houseboat ekes out a livelihood selling his catch, then drinks away his profits with Knoxville's misfits and miscreants. McCarthy's prose is ancient and exact and mythic, and his portrait of America's underbelly in the 1950s is shocking in its depiction of human degradation.
Read about another book on the list.

Suttree is among Ron Rash's six favorite Southern fiction books.
