The story of an elderly black farmer arrested for the murder of a white man and threatened by a lynch mob in America's Deep South. A characteristically Faulknerian tale of dark omen, its sole ray of hope the character of a young white boy who repays on old favour by proving the farmer's innocence.

"A work of timeless importance" New York Times "He has written a novel which in form is a thriller - and a very good thriller too - but this without distracting from its profundity" New Statesman "There is an extraordinary vigor and power in his writing, a feverish urge toward description in which words combine in a dense web of meaning" Chicago Tribune "The greatest American writers of the last century were William Faulkner and Saul Bellow" -- Philip Roth "In a single brief decade, Faulkner had produced more lasting works of fiction than many great writers do in a lifetime" Guardian

William Faulkner

William Cuthbert Faulkner was a Nobel Prize-winning American novelist and short story writer. One of the most influential writers of the twentieth century, his reputation is based mostly on his novels, novellas, and short stories. He was also a published poet and an occasional screenwriter. The majority of his works are based in his native state of Mississippi. Though his work was published as early as 1919, and largely during the 1920s and 1930s, Faulkner was relatively unknown until receiving the 1949 Nobel Prize in Literature, "for his powerful and artistically unique contribution to the modern American novel." Faulkner has often been cited as one of the most important writers in the history of American literature. Faulkner was influenced by the european modernism, and employed the Stream of consciousness in several of his novels.
