Читаю аннотацию к "Москитам" Фолкнера: выглядит как сценарий фильма Вуди Аллена, с одной лишь разницей - действие происходит не в НЙ)

Opening in New Orleans, steamy and rich as compost, the story proceeds to a voyage among the Florida cays. Mrs. Maurier, a culture vulture from the same aviary as the Marx Brothers' statuesque and preposterous "Mrs. Rittenrotten", takes an unruly group of acquaintances on her yacht. A laconic poet, a too articulate novelist, a surly sculptor, a very English major, a Jewish cynic, a young man with a straw hat and an accommodating blonde, all help to disrupt Mrs. Maurier's cultural outing. Drink flows, anecdotes run wild (the story of the sheep-farm in the swamp is surely the funniest thing Faulkner ever wrote): the yacht runs aground, a young couple gets lost, a man spends half a day looking for his own body.
