The charm and comedy of this novel, conveyed in Faulkner's complex language, are easily understood through Hill's excellent narration. He does justice to both black and white characters in this story of the joyriding adventures of young Lucius Priest; his cousin, Boon Hogganbeck; and their relation, Ned McCaslin. The novel is hilarious; the narration is excellent. It's unfortunate that the production values are not all they could be. It doesn't ruin one's listening, but it would be much improved if the sound levels didn't vary so much and the tapes were properly cued from side to side. Still, this is a classic item with an excellent reader. E.F. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 94]
