Overview

A strange assortment of people have gathered on a yacht belonging to a New York matron. They are not sure why they are there, and most have come against their better judgment, but nevertheless they plan to frolic and enjoy.

Using satirical humor, the author, better known as the grim master of novels such as SOLDIER'S PAY and THE SOUND AND THE FURY, weaves a sparkling and compelling story. Though humor is a change for Faulkner, he adheres to his own high standards of excellence and we find that he is more than up to the challenge.

"For readers, a new look at an old master." (B-O-T Editorial Review Board)

Lillian Hellman
[Mosquitoes] is full of the fine kind of swift and lusty writing that comes from a healthy, fresh pen.
New York Herald Tribune
Conrad Aiken
Faulkner has a sense of character; he has a sense of humor; he has a sense of style; and for his new novel, Mosquitoes, he has found an amusing and�original setting.
