Spolit, feckless Temple Drake, the daughter of a judge, runs away from school with an unsuitable man.
Abandoned by him with a gang of moonshiners, Temple falls into the clutches of the psychotic Popeye, one of the most grotesque characters of Faulkner's imagination.
A compelling, shocking tale of perverted justice in the Deep South, "Sanctuary" is also a moving plea for courage in the darkest of circumstances.
