A superb copy of a novel that contrasts stark tragedy with hopeful perseverance in the face of mortality; featuring some of Faulkner's most memorable characters: guileless, dauntless Lena Grove, in search of the father of her unborn child; Reverend Gail Hightower, a lonely outcast haunted by visions of Confederate glory; as well as Joe Christmas, a desperate, enigmatic drifter consumed by his mixed ancestry.
