The death and burial of Addie Bundren is told by members of her family, as they cart the coffin to Jefferson, Mississippi, to bury her among her people. And as the intense desires, fears and rivalries of the family are revealed in the vernacular of the Deep South, the author presents a portrait of extraordinary power - as epic as the Old Testament, as American as Huckleberry Finn.
Winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature.
