bookshelves: fantasticallywierd
Read in January, 1994

fabulous horror, horribly fabulous. Faulkner is one of those rare talents whose use of language makes it feel as if the story is coming out of the center of one's brain, rather than the normally staid input directly through the eyes. You have to love these people, in spite of their gross stupidity, for their persistence and enduring fortitude to what little threads carry them through the persistent agony of existence. If only they had lavished one-tenth of the care on Ma in life that they did in death. Why do we always wait until its too late? What is wrong with us humans? Why, God, Why??
