Absalom! Absalom! by William Faulkner

I am but 70 pages into my copy and already I love it. The story or, as I like to think of it, history is intriguing in and of itself. However, the way Faulkner masterfully weaves language and image into a ritualized dream-space is what makes the book captivating.

Absalom and just about everything else Faulkner ever wrote are favorites of mine. I re-read his books regularly and am always struck by the authenticity of his stories.
