I agree, McCarthy has a way with presenting the story for a reader to visualize!
Onwards with the reading.
The bridges are still here, although the Henley Street Bridge is under renovation and most of the road is missing. It was deconstructed to the point that only the arches were left. They're in the rebuilding phase now and it's supposed to be finished by June 2013.
> 8 Hi wesmorgan, welcome to Librarything! Sadly I know nothing about moth identification but the one described on page 89 does intrigue me, especially the description of the "robber's mask" and "wizened face not unlike a monkey's and wearing a windswept ermine shako". Never though a description of a moth would captivate my attention!
I'm only up to page 76 so I haven't come across the moth description yet. I'm afraid I won't be any help, though, since my science knowledge is so limited.
Lori, I should mention that the Woodlawn Cemetery mentioned on p. 14 is right behind the public library branch I visit most often. I don't have to pass it to get to the library, but since I usually stop at the library on my way to or from somewhere else, I drive past the cemetery all the time.
I am now passed the half way mark - currently at page 259 - and have had my reading stalled by finding myself inadvertently being sucked into the Olympic coverage. In the past 7 days I have become a full on soccer fan (surprisingly so) along with following other events but I will be back to my reading of Suttree this weekend. Promise.
Great book and stunning piece of writing evoking time and place. Part of me is afraid to continue because at some point the book will then end......
