What Wred's Currently Reading: The Sound And The Fury by William Faulkner
Yeah, I've read this before, a couple of times in fact, but I had to make some room on my bookcase (as a recovering packrat, I only permit myself so much room for books), so my ducttaped together, yellowed, and somewhat musty (it came that way except for the ducttape, which was an improvement over pages falling out and spilling all over the floor) paperback copy of The Sound And The Fury and I are parting ways. I can't remember when I got this copy, but it had to be twenty years ago or so, and, based on the writing inside, it belonged before to someone named Martha Evans. My guess is that my copy of Faulkner's 1929 masterpiece was published later in the 1960s (it lists Faulkner's death in the back but has no UPC and just seems like a 1960s paperback). I don't know what Martha thought of it, but I've always enjoyed this novel. It might be my favorite of Faulkner's. When I first read it, I found the opening Benjy sequence to be very confusing, but now that I know what to expect, it might be the funnest portion, if fun is an applicable way to describe this book. I'd probably be better off reading the Norton edition advertised below, but, you know how it is, when something's been with you for a number of years, you grow fond of it, so I'm giving it one last read before it goes out the door.

Google plops ads on here with my permission in the futile hope that I will make money (so far, um, no). I find the ads amusing because they try to tie in with the content of the posts. However, if Google has a crush on you, then the ads may deal with things you're interested in instead. Please set your browser accordingly if you object to that (eat those cookies). Google also provides traffic statistics to me so I can see if anyone's reading this silly thing (yes, people are), but otherwise I don't give a hoot who you are. Enjoy the blog and love Big Brother! I also don't receive money or other compensation for Yips, though I have nothing against money or other compensation (that's why I run advertising and sometimes use Amazon referrals for links); if I'm selling something (say, my books), then it will be pretty obvious I'm selling it . . . say, have you thought about buying a signed copy of The Pornographic Flabbergasted Emus lately?
