funny, i'm in the middle of as i lay dying, but i think i bit off more then i can chew, i bought it in english because i like to read my books the way they were written if i can, but his dialect gives me a headache....
if i may recommend, Gabriel Garcia Marquez - 100 years of solitude or love in the time of cholera....

that it is....i would also say quite magical....this may be a bit blasphemic of me but i liked love in the time of cholera a tad better.....
a question for the english major, does Faulkner always write in the souther "hick" dialect or are his other works more readable?

As far as I know, Yes he does, but that's what's so intrigueing about his work. As I Lay Dying is definitely one of his most, if not the most, readable books. If you want confusion try to sit down and read Absolom Absolom by him
