My doom is come upon me.
I kind of thought #1 wouldn't happen because, hey, we had #1 already a few Spins ago, but that's randomness for you. Still. Faulkner.
I have read exactly one Faulkner title in the past, in Comparative Literature 1B in my first semester at Cal in the spring of 1992. I think it was Absalom, Absalom! but I don't really know at this distance. There may have been something about a funeral and a bridge. It made no sense to me. I think I put Faulkner on my CC list because it was so scary, and also because my American literature is so awful in general. I'm now re-thinking the wisdom of that decision.
I've put a hold on it at the public library. I ought to be able to get it at work, but during the Great Summer Weed I noticed that all the famous Faulkner titles had disappeared over the years (like they do--they get lost or wander away) so that only the titles nobody has heard of were left on the shelf, and the replacements I ordered have not yet finished processing.
OK, now I'm just babbling in panic. So. Faulkner. Here we go. [Bob the Tomato] I can DO this. [/Bob the Tomato]
