Read in November, 2008

This is the first of the Snopes books and tells the story of how Flem Snopes and company came to Frenchman's Bend and became related to the Varners. It is painfully beautiful. Each massive sentence invites the reader to examine the placement and meaning of every phrase, every word, and in so doing, unravels some small part of the universe.
