I don't know what I expected to learn about Faulkner in 5 minutes, but if I learned anything its that these things are garbage and a huge waste of time. The performance was condescending and slightly ridiculous. Take the 5 minutes to read the Wikipedia article...even then you'll be better off than listening to this.
This is definitely not my usual genre of lit, but I saw the movie (Capote - 2005) and was intrigued. Even if you're not a true crime person, this story gets under your skin and grips you. Capote defined the genre of true crime novels with In Cold Blood, and you'll see how and why it has become (and remained) so popular. I usually hate movies with books, but as an exception to the rule, I'd suggest you see the movie as well.
Scott Brick's narration is SPOT ON. What a perfect narrator. Kudos to Audible, or whoever matched him for this book.
