I have both As I Lay Dying and The Sound and the Fury on the tbr pile. I love both titles - great titles.

I'm a Faulkner fan, too, Angie! (and thanks for the befriendening, btw). I'm with Bill, though--my all time Faulkner fave is Absalom, Absalom!. Have you seen Truffaut's King Lear? May be something you'd like.

Back at ya, Vince!

Well, Sandra, I guess there's a lot you still don't know about me. Heh heh.

And don't feel bad, Tiffany. Faulkner wrote a lot of stuff (including the screenplay for "The Big Sleep"), but if you want a quick foray into his work, check out his short story "A Rose for Emily." Tres creepy and weirdly heartbreaking.

I never saw the American desecration of Wings of Desire, Patti. When I heard about their twist on the film, I decided to do myself a favor and pass. Just couldn't imagine the movie without Bruno G., Peter Falk, Nick Cave, et al.

And Jeremy, under the right circumstances, the toilet cleaner label can most definitely provide a riveting reading experience. When trapped in a particular position, it can be fun to try and say all those wacky chemicals out loud.

And the bottle of toilet bowl cleaner, it was a riviting read?

The American version of Wings of Desire was a disappoinmtent though. Lost its ethereal atmosphere. Hi Angie. Nice to chat.

I haven't the foggiest how I managed to not read Faulkner in school (save As I Lay Dying), but I keep getting Sanctuary recommended my way -- his conscious attempt to write for money, and I guess his "pulp" effort.

"Like some steamy sex with your steaming corpses?"

I can't believe you wrote that. I wasn't aware of your interests.

Hi, Angie. Thanks for the welcome.

Hi, Lori. Thanks for stopping by.

Highbrow? Nah. I read pretty much everything, from mountain to valley, Faulkner to the back of the bottle of toilet bowl cleaner. If it's a good story (or an interesting list of nearly unpronounceable ingredients), I'm in.
:o)

Angie - I added you as a friend and see you have much more high brow taste than I do :)

Diversity, right?

I favor As I Lay Dying by a nose over The Sound and the Fury, but my all-time fave Faulkner is Absolom, Absolom. Oh. My. God.

Most of Faulkner's books are good, but THE SOUND AND THE FURY was the first book I read that totally blew my socks off. I was 12 or 13 and worked hard to understand what the hell was happening (I had to read some of it out loud to figure out the dialect - and I grew up in Mississippi!!!). It was completely worth it and changed the way I thought about books and writing.

The grandfather of one of my friends knew Faulkner from his Oxford, MS days. Evidently Faulkner was an original disgruntled postal worker. Folks often had to dig through the trash to get their mail when he didn't feel like sorting it. I love that story!

The Sound and The Fury was good ... but I prefered As I Lay Dying.

And Light in August.

And the Sound and the Fury.

You can always give me your cc number, Bill! I want some of whatever that Canadian blondie's selling...and I found a Bates Motel shirt I really, really want...ooh, and that trip to Aruba...

Hi, Tiffany. Nice to meet ya. Yep, the hardy frontier folk of AZ don't need no stinkin' DST. Actually, I like not worrying about resetting all the clocks twice a year. Makes keeping up with the rest of the country a little challenging, though.

Nice to meet you -- are y'all still abstaining from Daylight Savings Time?

Mindy, would you like my credit card number?
At 1:59am on March 15, 2007, Angie said…
um...cause he ordered one? If you really want one to smear food all over, you know how to get in touch!

How come Bill gets a shirt and I don't?

Hi, Lynette! Nice to see another MWFer here! And love the hat!
