9780099740315: Intruder In The Dust (Vintage Classics)

Set in the deep south that provided the backdrop for all of Faulkner's finest fiction, Intruder in the Dust is the novel that marks the final phase of its author's outstanding creative period. The chronicle of an elderly black farmer arrested for the murder of a white man and under threat from the lynch mob is a characteristically Faulknerian tale of dark omen, its sole ray of hope the character of the young white boy who repays an old favour by proving the innocence of the man who saved him from drowning in an icy creek.

Product Description:

An elderly, proud black farmer, Lucas Beauchamp, is wrongfully arrested for the murder of a white man. The lynch mob are baying for his blood. His sole hope lies with a young white boy, bent on repaying an old favour, who with the help of Lucas's cynical lawyer will work to find the truth and hatch a risky plot to prove his innocence.

Review:

"A work of timeless importance" ( New York Times)

"He has written a novel which in form is a thriller - and a very good thriller too - but this without distracting from its profundity" ( New Statesman)

"There is an extraordinary vigor and power in his writing, a feverish urge toward description in which words combine in a dense web of meaning" ( Chicago Tribune)

"The greatest American writers of the last century were William Faulkner and Saul Bellow" (Philip Roth)

"In a single brief decade, Faulkner had produced more lasting works of fiction than many great writers do in a lifetime" ( Guardian)
