Well, I stayed up late and finished As I Lay Dying. I really enjoyed the book and it ended with a trademark quirk. Some of the the end was a bit disconcerting - Darl getting arrested for arson I never saw coming and poor Dewey Dell and her quest for a solution to her "problem". Anse comes out the best of the lot in the end - another classisc instance of God providing for him! LOL I have to say I'm become a Faulkner fan and I never thought I'd say that!
This is my first completed read for the Southern Reading Challenge - now it's a debate between Queen of the Turtle Derby by Julia Harris or Lunch at the Picadilly by Clyde Edgerton. I think Lunch is going to win!
Maggie, thanks for the TAB hint - it worked!
