I did no post-reading note but was suitably impressed by this book ( )

Now this was strange: part novel and part play and part who knows what. Faulkner's always trying to push the envelope here. It follows Temple Drake after her appearance in Sanctuary, but it's not as exciting of a read. There are better Faulkner books out there. ( )
