All the Kings Men—Robert Penn Warren
Absolutely a fabulous book. Although it did take me about a month to read it—hey, its 700 pages of dense prose, and I was busy! It does take about 150 pages to pick up and get interesting, but the writing is to die for! I’m talking about page long sentences that you can just wrap yourself in.  I’d read a few pages, and then have to put the book down because it was so rich, in the same way that you would pause after a few bites of really rich chocolate cake.  A wonderful book I would highly recommend reading!
