PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC As I Lay Dying (Folio Society) In the stifling heat of a Mississippi summer a woman lies on her deathbed From her airless room she can hear her son sawing planks to make her coffin Two other sons have left to fetch timber they know that they could miss the moment of their mother s passing but they cannot resist the chance to earn three dollars Addie Bundren s one request is to be buried in Jefferson miles away Her family s terrible journey there will be plagued with disasters of almost biblical proportions including a flooded river that threatens to sweep away the coffin entirely .

First published in As I Lay Dying is an unforgettable portrait of a poverty stricken American family The narrative is shared by members of the Bundren clan their neighbours and acquaintances Jewel Addie s favourite son whose real father is the preacher Whitfield Addie s work shy husband Anse who fears that if he ever sweats he will die their daughter Dewey Dell who has pinned her hopes on the trip to Jefferson in order to terminate a pregnancy As each of the narrators speaks an utterly compelling picture of their relationships secrets rivalries and frustrations emerges Faulkner s style at times resembles the stream of consciousness of Joyce and Woolf informed by the rhythms of Southern speech and its unanswerable truths And then life wasn t made to be easy on folks they wouldn t ever have any reason to be good and die .
