It is the story of Addie Bundren's death, and her family's search to honor her wish to bury her in the town of Jefferson, Mississippi. Faulkner's stream of consciousness style engages the reader.
Each chapter is narrated by a different character. I would highly recommend this book, as Faulkner's style grips you, and it's hard to put the book down once you get started.

I never ever wanted to read Faulkner again after I had read The Bear (yuk). And now, after having read As I lay dying (sigh, so beautiful), I still never want to read him again. You see, this story--so short, so cutting edge, so heavy, so funny and tragic, and so thick with things to think about--is so good. You won't believe that this tiny tale of a dysfunctional hillbilly family is as old as your granny yet has a narrative style as schizoid as your coolest punk rock buddy. How could I stand to ever read Faulkner again and possibly face a crushing disappointment?

Read it, all you avant garde wordsmiths, and bow down to a master!
