McGlue by Ottessa Moshfegh

McGlue is a story about a homeless, illiterate, lascivious, drunk, who has little respect for authority, which manages to make the reader feel sympathetic toward the protagonist. Imprisoned aboard a ship en route to Salem, Massachusetts, McGlue is accused of murdering his best friend, Johnson.
