"A revolutionary novelist - he experiments with narration like no other" ( Guardian)

"His mind to him a kingdom was; or rather, a county, Yoknapatawpha. He breathed on it and gave it life, a luminous world of rustics, comic and sinister, of inchoate historical processes and tragic human beings, earning dignity by endurance" ( Independent)

"The magnitude of Faulkner's characters lies in their blood and bone and sinew: the exquisite specificity of their human fallibility... Faulkner seemed incapable of separating intimate character from universal truth, and this rough refusal - both humble and defiant - was at the root of his force as a writer... No other American writer has achieved such staggering heights of form" ( Boston Globe)

"There is tension and passion enough in this drama. The impetus never fails" ( Observer)

Book Description:

A tense and troubling tale of how a dark past can return to tear apart a hard-won present peace.
