"The book is like a salve. I think the world feels disordered right now. The count's refinement and genteel nature are exactly what we're longing for." --Ann Patchett
"How delightful that in an era as crude as ours this finely composed novel stretches out with old-World elegance." --The Washington Post
"Funny, tender, and moving, The Storied Life of A. J. Fikry reminds us all exactly why we read and why we love."* A. J. Fikry's life is not at all what he expected it to be. He lives alone, his bookstore is experiencing the worst sales in its history, and now his prized possession, a rare collection of Poe poems, has been stolen.
The Sound and the Fury is the tragedy of the Compson family, featuring some of the most memorable characters in literature: beautiful, rebellious Caddy; the manchild Benjy; haunted, neurotic Quentin; Jason, the brutal cynic; and Dilsey, their black servant.
"First, I'll tell about the robbery our parents committed. Then the murders, which happened later."
So begins Canada, the unforgettable story of a boy attempting to find grace, written by the only writer in history to win both the Pulitzer Prize and Pen/Faulkner Award for a single novel.
