This is a very short story and not what I really expected. However I am sure that it was described accurately in the ad.

Format: Paperback
If you want to know who these white working class citizens against President Obama are, you should read William Faulkner's Barn Burning. Faulkner takes the reader into a community that is often ignored with great literary skill. The white working class is a group that live a life that is as unstable as an urban black community. Barn Burning is a story about the desperation, bitterness, and destruction of the working poor. Of course the concept of working poor is oxymoronic. If a person works, they should not be poor. Faulkner does not leave the reader in a negative emotional state, Barn Burning has an endearing hero. What Tupac would call a rose sprouting up from the concrete. The best part about Barn Burning is that it is a short story, for those lazy readers. After watching Obama's response to the mid-term elections, I would suggest that he read William Faulkner's Barn Burning.
