NOBEL PRIZE WINNER - Family drama and the legacy of slavery haunt this epic tale of an enigmatic stranger in Jefferson, Mississippi--from one of the most acclaimed writers of the twentieth century.

"Read, read, read. Read everything--trash, classics, good and bad, and see how they do it. Just like a carpenter who works as an apprentice and studies the master. Read! You'll absorb it. Then write. If it is good, you'll find out. If it's not, throw it out the window." --William Faulkner

Absalom, Absalom! is Faulkner's epic tale of Thomas Sutpen, a man who comes to the South in the early 1830s to wrest his mansion out of the muddy bottoms of the north Mississippi wilderness. He was a man, Faulkner said, "who wanted sons and the sons destroyed him."
