    A Fable by William Faulkner. Sounds a lot different from his other stuff, which piques my interest.

    American Pastoral by Philip Roth

    Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before. ~ Edgar Allan Poe

    Wow. Come on people, this is the Pultizer Prize for god's sake; there're plenty of good books to nominate. If we end up with only 3, that's pretty sad.

    I won't be reading Advise and Consent simply because the only copies I can find to buy are insanely expensive.

    I agree, but I've also already read it and don't plan to reread it any time soon. The Philip Roth book, on the other hand, looked interesting.

    Read both books but I was a little disappointed with Roth's so it is the one book in the poll that I will not read.
