Our fiction book club meets the 4th Thursday of each month at 5:30. The group reads a variety of works of fiction chosen periodically by the group.
The April selection is As I Lay Dying by William Faulkner.
As I Lay Dying is Faulkner's harrowing account of the Bundren family's odyssey across the Mississippi countryside to bury Addie, their wife and mother. Narrated in turn by each of the family members--including Addie herself--as well as others the novel ranges in mood, from dark comedy to the deepest pathos. Considered one of the most influential novels in American fiction in structure, style, and drama, As I Lay Dying is a true 20th-century classic.
