As I Lay Dying (Faulkner)

As I Lay Dying 
William Faulkner, 1930
Knopf Doubleday
267 pp.
ISBN-13: 9780679732259

At the heart of this 1930 novel is harrowing, darkly comic tale of the Bundren family's bizarre journey to Jefferson to bury Addie, their wife and mother. Faulkner lets each family member—including Addie herself— and others along the way tell their private responses to Addie's life.

Faulkner's use of multiple viewpoints to reveal the inner psychological make-up of the characters is one of the novel's chief charms. (From the publisher.)
