This book, along with The Town and The Mansion, compose the "Snopes Trilogy," one of the grand epics of Southern literature. Funny, moving, frightening, romantic, these novels bring us Faulkner's most unforgettable characters and a vivid portrait of life in northern Mississippi in the first part of the last century. Outstanding!
