The 50 in 52 Project Reading Challenge continues! (scroll down for more details)
I’ve just finished the 23rd book, Lady Chatterley’s Lover by D. H. Lawrence…only 27 more books to go! (For a cool quote from the book, go my blog.)
Next up is….As I Lay Dying by William Faulkner (1930)
For those keeping score: this is book #24, week #24
A little info on William Faulkner and his work:
William Faulkner was born in 1897. He was raised in Oxford, Mississippi, where he would spend most of his life. Faulkner’s use of stream of consciousness narration, as well as his attention to diction and cadence made him a towering figure in literature. As opposed to Hemingway’s terse prose and Fitzgerald’s ironic narratives, Faulkner’s writing was nakedly emotional and often cerebral. His intricate prose was sometimes subtle and other times bordered on the gothic. His oeuvre includes The Sound and the Fury (1929), As I Lay Dying (1930), Light in August (1932) and Absalom, Absalom! (1936). Faulkner won the Nobel Prize in 1950. He passed away in 1962.
The 50 in 52 Project Reading Challenge is a fundraiser for RAINN.org (Rape, Abuse, Incest National Network). I challenged myself to read 50 books in 1 year (6/1/18 to 6/1/19). I’m asking folks to sponsor me by pledging a $ amount per book I read. Sponsors don’t have to pay anything until after the Challenge finishes (6/1/19).
