I am not a book reviewer. Occasionally, though, I come across a book that I enjoy greatly and decide to post about it. Here are a few.

  1. The Potlikker Papers: A Food History of the Modern South by John T. Edge
    Food has meaning. It is personal.
  2. The Marvels by Brian Selznick
    I was not expecting to be moved the way it moved me.
  3. The Reivers
    Completing the project.
  4. The Mansion
    Finishing the trilogy.
  5. The Town
    The trilogy.
  6. A Fable
    I get the feeling we’re not in Yoknapatawpha anymore.
  7. Requiem for a Nun
    A flawed book and a depressing story.
  8. Intruder in the Dust
    This project is taking its toll.
  9. Go Down, Moses
    Back to experimentation.
  10. The Hamlet
    Ah, back to good ol Yoknapatawpha County.
  11. The Wild Palms
    I have a feeling we’re not in Yoknapatawpha County anymore.
  12. The Unvanquished
    Not Faulkner at his most enlightened.
  13. Absolam, Absolam
    In *Absolam, Absolam* Faulkner turns the story into a myth.
  14. Pylon
    And then there’s *Pylon* out of nowhere.
  15. Light in August
    Ah. This is the stuff.
  16. Sanctuary
    Beautiful, but off-putting.
  17. As I Lay Dying
    I can only imagine that things only get richer from here.
  18. The Sound and the Fury
    The fourth novel is when Faulkner becomes Faulkner.
  19. Flags in the Dust
    You say Sartoris, I say Flags in the Dust
  20. Mosquitoes
    Faulkner’s second novel. If not having success with writing, at least having fun with it.
  21. Soldiers’ Pay
    Faulkner’s first novel is a doozy. Maybe not his best work, but a great start to a career.
  22. The Chronological Faulkner Project
    So I’ve decided to read every Faulkner novel, back-to-back, in chronological order of writing.
  23. Imagination Library
    The project is a fundraiser for the Knox County Public Library’s Imagination Library program. The project comprised of a one-page website, and a 30 second television spot. You can see the television spot below.
  24. Book Recommendations: Non-fiction
    Instead of tearing down all the time, I’ve decided to build up.
