Faulkner – As I Lay Dying

The upcoming production of William Faulkner‘s novel “As I Lay Dying” has brought Faulkner back to life.  According to Wikapedia,  he wrote the novel in six weeks and he did not change a word of it.  It was Faulkner’s fifth novel and consistently ranked among the best novels of 20th century literature.  Recently, Faulkner came into my life as I designed the lobby for the New Albany, MS, Holiday Inn.  He was born there, I was told.  And so I used quotes from his novels and writings as the artwork for the hotel. 

“Given the experience between pain and nothing, I would choose pain”.   Wow.

Can’t wait to see what James Franco does with the movie.
