Publisher Description

A true 20th-century classic from the Nobel Prize-winning author of The Sound and the Fury: the famed harrowing account of the Bundren family’s odyssey across the Mississippi countryside to bury Addie, their wife and mother.

As I Lay Dying is one of the most influential novels in American fiction in structure, style, and drama. 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. 

“I set out deliberately to write a tour-de-force. Before I ever put pen to paper and set down the first word I knew what the last word would be and almost where the last period would fall.” —William Faulkner on As I Lay Dying

This edition reproduces the corrected text of As I Lay Dying as established in 1985 by Noel Polk.

Wonderful story!

Although it was a school assignment to read this book, I really enjoyed it. It's kinda hard to keep up with all the narrators switching, but the story over all is wonderful!

Great read

Make sure you finish

Ridiculous

This is, most definitely, the WORST book I have EVER read. It is completely incomprehensible, and if William Faulkner is considered a "fantastic" writer, than I am the greatest basketball player to ever play. You'd have to be completely delusional to enjoy this, nonetheless call this a masterpiece. If there is a moral to this completely idiotic story, it is that death cannot come quick enough.
