The only reason I am not giving this 1 star is because Faulkner utilizes a beautiful lexicon throughout A Fable. But that's pretty much the only redeeming quality. I can't believe I actually managed to push through and finish this book. It's strange, cause I like hypothetical scenarios, and I like non sequiturs, but this book just goes on and on. Perhaps I am more a fan of brevity than I previously suspected.

Oh, yeah. And Faulkner hates periods. As in, punctuation. And I LOVE punctuation. Love it.

Randi Minetor Jayme, you are more stalwart than I am. I got about halfway through and gave up. I'm reading all the Pulitzer novels, and this is the only one I could not stand to finish.
