A Must Read!
If you have read "The Hamlet" and "The Town", also by Faulkner, then you know that this is the last chapter in the trilogy featuring Flem and Mink Snopes, and family. Faulkner waited 20 years to write this culmination featuring Minks release from prison in Mississippi. The dynamics between Eula's grown daughter, Linda, and the Lawyer, over a 20 year span are interesting and reflect the changes in modern society, and perhaps Faulkner's own surroundings. However, the best part of the book is near the end which covers Mink's journey home upon his release after 20 years in prison. He hitchhikes home for a family reunion with Flem. In summary, after reading "The Hamlet", which is fascinating, and becoming entwined in the Snopes family and Eula, and Yoknapatawpha County, Mississippi, well, you have to read "The Mansion" to find out what happens to them all in the long run. These facts make this book a must read. I enjoyed the heck out of it.
