Teaser Tuesday: Absalom, Absalom!



That was the French architect. Years later the town learned that he had come all the way from Martinique on Sutpen's bare promise and lived for two years on venison cooked over a campfire, in an unfloored tent made of the wagon hood, before he so much as saw any color or shape of pay.

-- Absalom, Absalom! by William Faulkner. This one is dense, but not stream-of-conscious like The Sound and the Fury, so I like it better.


Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by The Purple Booker, where you can find the official rules for this weekly event.

Can't believe you're reading it. I rarely see this title on the blogs or anywhere. You have a good taste in books. So if anyone would read it, you would. Hope to read your thoughts about it.

Easier, but not easy! I struggled with it when I read it a couple of years ago, but I was pretty amazed in the end. Enjoy!
