Joe Christmas does not know whether he is black or white. Faulkner makes of Joe's tragedy a powerful indictment of racism; at the same time Joe's life is a study of the divided self and becomes a symbol of 20th century man. Light in August is the story of Lena Grove's search for the father of her unborn child, and features one of Faulkner's most memorable characters: Joe Christmas, a desperate drifter consumed by his mixed ancestry.

Excellently read; did favor to the accents and the characters' voices, and sometimes built up the intensity and sometimes subdued it, as the text required. Only one tiny drawback, it was at moments too slow, but others may differ in that opinion.
