The only thing I read was the section on Ellen Sutpen (Absalom,Absalom). The writers state that Ellen had the town merchants come to Sutpens 100 - no see went to town and had the merchants bring there wares to her carriage to inspect.
They also state that Rosa was 4 years older than her niece. The opposite is true.
Not sure I would read any more of this book if this is the level of accuracy in their work
