"Absalom is the peak of Faulkner's fictional achievement. It is unquestionably the greatest American novel since the turn of the century… Its sole competitors among contemporary American novels are Dreiser's American Tragedy and Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby, neither of which approaches Faulkner's innovative daring" (Karl, 582). As issued without dust jacket or slipcase. Petersen A18.2a. Hamblin & Brodsky 186.

Very lightest edge-wear, tiny bit of dampstaining to upper edge of front board. A scarce about-fine signed copy.
