This was the first book where Faulkner wrote about his favourite characters - Flem Snoups gets his first chance to shine in this book, but mainly it`s about one of the sons of the old colonel Sartoris that has returned from WW1 where his twin brother Johnny has died. The other one is a loony for sure who enjoys driving a car way too fast and who doesn`t care whether he lives or dies. Not an especially groundbreaking book, but at least easier to read than the one about the intruders in the dust. Still I won`t be rereading it I suppose.
