Requiem for a Nun
'The past is never dead. It's not even past.'
Nancy, a black nursemaid, is about to be hanged for killing her mistress's baby. The mother, Temple Drake, knows the reason why. The night before the execution, a lawyer pleads with Temple to intercede, but will the past allow for justice or absolution in the present? Switching between narrative prose and play script, this is Faulkner's haunting sequel to his earlier bestseller, Sanctuary.

Now this was strange: part novel and part play and part who knows what. Faulkner's always trying to push the envelope here. It follows Temple Drake after her appearance in Sanctuary, but it's not as exciting of a read. There are better Faulkner books out there. Read full review
