Memphis, Tennessee, is the closest city to Yoknapatawpha, and according to the narrator, "everybody in north Mississippi [goes there] at least once a year" (372). In the novel, they go there to buy furniture, automobiles, liquor, sex, and - in Mink's case - a handgun. (For the specific locations in or near Memphis mentioned in the novel, see the inset.)
