really liked it

A great pleasure to read. A comedy of errors and a road trip as well in 1904 Mississippi for three young men and their acquaintances. A new auto gets "borrowed" for a trip to Memphis, some horse trading and horse racing ensues, and the whole shebang gets wrapped up in a coming of age story for the narrator, a boy of 11 years. Abundant detail about the rural south and race relations, as usual for Faulkner.
Not to be missed.
