Added Author:
"This is the second volume of Faulkner's trilogy about the Snopes family, his symbol for the grasping, destructive element in the postbellum South. Like its predecessor, The Hamlet, and its successor, The Mansion, The Town is self-contained but gains resonance from being read with the other two. Flem Snope's ruthless struggle to take over the town of Jefferson, Mississippi, is rich in episodes of humor and profundity."--P. [4] of cover.
