Tatterdemalion comes from my reading of Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell, which after a slow-going first chapter or so is really starting to hum along.
"No more tatterdemalion a renagado I ever beheld, but Mr. Evans swore the quadroon, Barnabas, was "the fleetest sheepdog who ever ran upon two legs."

Here's the Dictionary.com definition.  Tatterdemalion: a person in tattered clothing; a shabby person.

I am not disciplined enough to host Read Alongs but if you are reading the book or you have read it, I would love to know what you think. Are you excited about the film?
Cloud Atlas is due out October 26. You might want to check out the Cloud Atlas site.
