Biography: 

Ab Snopes older son, Sarty's older brother, is never mentioned by name, but from the Yoknapatawpha fictions as a whole it is clear that he is Flem Snopes, one of the major recurring figures in those fictions, and the central character of Faulkner's Snopes Trilogy. He plays only a minor role in "Barn Burning," as the willing accomplice in his father's career as a barn burner. Faulkner aficionados, however, should recognize him as Flem by his constant "chewing" (5, 22).
