I'm just making a place for anyone who's reading S&F to drop in and palaver about it.

And I'll throw in a little Shakespeare to hold things down in the meantime:

To-morrow, and to-morrow and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury
Signifying nothing.

It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury
Signifying nothing

Shakespeare does it again. Perhaps the best capsule review of Atlas Shrugged

I'm about halfway through Aberration of Starlight by Gilbert Sorrentino. Through experimentalism and stream-of-consciousness, Sorrentino tells the tale of a family in the 1930s. The parallels to Sound and the Fury are apt.
