Purchased at a thrift store to release, but as I read the cover, I realized it actually sounds like something I might enjoy. Off to Mt. TBR it goes!

Cover blurb:

The scene is Mississippi. The time is 1905. And the action opens with a bang and a roar when three oddly assorted accomplices--a part-Indian with a roving eye, a less-than-faithful black family retainer, and a canny eleven-year-old white boy--steal an auto and start a trip that makes LSD seem tame. Their first destination: a Memphis brothel. And that is just the beginning...

I have cut a deal with my kids that every time I cuss, I have to get rid of a book. Let one slip out this morning, so this book will have to be sacrificed to the gods of cleanly speech...

Coming home from visiting friends in Albuquerque, I made a special detour to the Painted Horse. I picked up this book and a couple others. I chose this one because it's a Faulkner I've never read, and a Pulitzer-Prize winner to boot. Thanks, Jare!
