First published in 1929, Faulkner created his "heart's darling", the beautiful and tragic Caddy Compson, whose story Faulkner told through separate monologues by her three brothers: the idiot Benjy, the neurotic suicidal Quentin, and the monstrous Jason.
Muhammed Ali and Howard Cosell, a legendary athlete and a television icon, were individually interesting, but together they were mesmerizing. They were profoundly different, young and old, black and white, a Muslim and a Jew, Ali barely literate, Cosell an editor of his university's law review. Yet they had in common forces that made them unforgettable: both were unprecedented performers who covered enormous insecurities by demanding, loudly and often, public acclaim.

I was still in high school when I met Mason. Everything about him seemed dangerous to me, from the fact that he was an illegal street racer to the fact that he was older than me. He was the sexiest guy I'd ever met, and I was way too young...Maybe that's why I fell so quickly into his arms. I'm caught between my strict dad, a boring high school life, and an underground world filled with fast cars and deadly consequences.
