Hated it. Hated every single second of it. I am a voracious reader and consider myself a fairly smart person, but couldn't for the life of me follow this one. Ignore the Nobel Prize- this one's a hard pass.

This is my first Faulkner. I just started it. I bought it because it was the cheapest. I'm hoping it's good. Has anyone read it? Thoughts?

jenmoody23 Never read this one, but The Reivers is great. I need more Faulkner in my life. 2y
Emilymdxn I just read my first ever faulkner recently and really enjoyed it! I haven‘t read this one but I hope you get into him too! 2y

This one is rough. I loved As I Lay Dying, The Town books, The Sound and the Fury, and others, but this one is not gripping me with the language for some reason. I have about a third of it left though.

#TBT to the summer of 2014, when I had the honor of going to the Faulkner Conference in Oxford, MS. This photo is on the upper porch of Square Books, one of the most relaxing places I've visited. And it shows off a few of my many journals. (More to come...) #throwbackthursday

[DELETED] 3323341091 Sanctuary is my favorite of his works. 3y
BookishFeminist This looks wonderfully serene. Also I learned something: there's a Faulkner Conference, lol 3y
Titania Square Books is my favorite bookstore ever. (Sorry, Powells! You're second! ;-) ) Always a must stop when we're in Oxford. 3y
ForestAvenuePress Amazing bookstore! I only was there once but it's on my to-return list. 3y

Disturbing but strangely beautiful, and in places equal parts insightful and hilarious. Faulkner has a remarkable knack for capturing people and places and knowing just how to baffle a reader without putting them off completely.

I am sick. I am too old for this. I was born too old for it, and so I am sick to death for quiet.

This funeral scene is the funniest thing I've read in years.

Say what you want to, but there‘s a corruption about even looking upon evil, even by accident; you cannot haggle, traffic, with putrefaction.
