Sanctuary by William Faulkner

Psychologically astute and wonderfully poetic, Sanctuary is a powerful novel examining the nature of true evil, through the prisms of mythology, local lore, and hard-boiled detective fiction. This is the dark, at times brutal, story of the kidnapping of Mississippi debutante Temple Drake, who introduces her own form of venality into the Memphis underworld where she is being held.

“A haunting study of evil triumphant” New York Times “Not a book for the fainthearted” Sunday Times “Thick with menace, desire, compulsion and despair” Los Angeles Times 

Sanctuary by William Faulkner is one of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s favorite books.
