Description: 

The county library is in Jefferson. The "Appendix" mentions several of the books on its shelves by name or at least by type: "Forever Amber" and "Jurgen and Tom Jones," and various "volumes of Thorne Smith" (333). With the exception of Fielding's Tom Jones, the 18th century English novel, these works are by 20th century American novelists who could be considered competitors of Faulkner's for the attention of the reading public; all of them were notorious for their representation of sex.
