Rohit Reviews: As I Lay Dying

In what may be deemed a rather curious coincidence, I finished up William Faulkner's As I Lay Dying yesterday morning prior to work, just in time for Valentine's Day. A disconcerting novel from start to finish, As I Lay Dying vacillates almost imperceptibly between dark comedy and even darker tragedy, and as I was reading, I was often hard-pressed to know whether to laugh or cry.
