"When a white man is shot and killed in a small Southern town, an elderly black man is immediately jailed. The only hope for Lucas Beauchamp lies in the determined efforts of a young white boy and an elderly spinster to unearth new evidence. Faulkner's beloved Yoknapatawpha County springs magnificently to life in this brilliant reading by Wolfram Kandinsky, a master at evoking the moodiness of the Southern locale. While Faulkner batters you with run-on sentences and a barrage of adjectives and adverbs, Kandinsky soothes your soul with his narrative skill, carefully enunciating each word and placing stress on the important passages. This is a virtuoso performance that should not be missed. E.E.L. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
