The Portable Faulkner (Penguin Classics)

The Portable Faulkner (Penguin Classics) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In prose of biblical grandeur and feverish intensity, William Faulkner reconstructed the history of the American South as a tragic legend of courage and cruelty, gallantry and greed, futile nobility and obscene crimes. No single volume better conveys the scope of Faulkners vision than The Portable Faulkner.
