9780099479314: As I Lay Dying

The death and burial of Addie Bundren is told by members of her family, as they cart the coffin to Jefferson, Mississippi, to bury her among her people. And as the intense desires, fears and rivalries of the family are revealed in the vernacular of the Deep South, Faulkner presents a portrait of extraordinary power - as epic as the Old Testament, as American as Huckleberry Finn.

Review:

"A masterpiece of dark humour" ( Daily Express)

"The greatest American writers of the last century were William Faulkner and Saul Bellow... As I Lay Dying and The Adventures of Augie March: it's hard to think of two better novels written in this country in any century" (Philip Roth Observer)

"One of America's greatest writers" ( The Times)

"A beautiful novel" ( Independent)

"By universal consent of critics and common readers, Faulkner is now recognised as the strongest American novelist of the century, clearly surpassing (Ernest) Hemingway and (Scott) Fitzgerald, and standing as an equal in the sequence that includes Hawthorne, Melville, Mark Twain and Henry James . . . As I Lay Dying may be the most original novel ever written by an American" (Harold Bloom)

Book Description:

'Brilliant and compelling - one is constrained to follow to the end' Spectator
