    Selected Short Stories PDF/EPUB å Selected Short selected pdf, short free, stories book, Selected Short free, Selected Short Stories PDF/EPUBAs a writer and a native of Oxford Mississippi I'm expected and required to respect and laud the work of William Faulkner I found the short stories in this collection to be unique remarkable for their time and utterly tedious I read Faulkner for the same reason I brush my teeth at 300 in the morning after returning from a boozy bender on The Square I know I should do it for the sake of conforming to community standards but I'd rather just go to bed Bless his heart that Faulkner For years we treated him like the town drunk that he was Then the French declared him to be a literary genius and—with smiles on our faces and pride in our hearts—we built him a statue right next to the town courthouse It's a regal and generous effigy I don't know why the French liked him so much I'm young and have unrefined taste and no valuable perspective on the man's contributions to Words on Pages about Imagined Things

Could that even be done? The Sartoris family story is so insanely complex I can't imagine even Faulkner could keep it all straight so ma
