Instant Classics for the Modern Reader

A wildly ambitious novel, a beyond-brave memoir, and an expansive modern history: We loved them from the first page, and we’d like to re-introduce them to the Aesthetes.
As I Lay Dying  by William Faulkner

As I Lay Dying

288 pages; Random House Publishing Group

At the heart of the novel beats a family's response to the loss of the most important person in their lives. They laugh, they curse, they fight, they bleed, they break, they love, they endure—just like we do.
