Light In August by William Faulkner

  • Aug 14, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members


Set in the South in the 1930s, Light In August explores questions of sex and race that are still very much relevant today. The novel manages to be dark and violent while also light-hearted and comical, a testament to Faulkner’s gift as a writer. Widely criticized at the time of its publication (and in some cases dismissed as “gothic fantasy” for its unflinching look at lynching and other violence perpetrated against Southern blacks), it is now greatly admired for its unique narrative style and its honest, yet compassionate depiction of Southern life.

    I'm sorry to have to cancel, but I can't imagine I will finish the book....and I'm trying to fit in a lot of work before my vacation. I will step aside to let someone on the waiting list in for the evening. Have a great time!
