Okay, we are back with "Name that Novel Title and Author". This excerpt is from the classics. See what you can do with it:
Apparently Armstid has never once looked full at her. Yet he has already seen that she wears no wedding ring.... "How far you come from?" he says.
She expels her breath. It is not a sigh so much as a peaceful expiration, as though of peaceful astonishment. "A right good piece, it seems now. I come from Alabama."
"Alabama? In your shape? Where's you folks?"
She does not look at him, either. "I'm looking to meet him up this way. You might know him. His name is Lucas Burch. They told me back yonder a ways that he is in Jefferson, working for the planing mill."
.....Well, there you have it. And good luck to all!
(And, people, PLEASE try not to be tempted to google the character names first. That is sooooo like cheating!)
Okay, time's up! Yes, the author is William Faulkner....and the title? Light in August :-) I will be back with another one, soon.
