Novel long sentence

According to The Chicago Tribune:

"The new owner of the record for the longest sentence in published literature is Mathias Enard for his 517-page French novel "Zone." In fact, the entire novel, except for a few pages of flashbacks, is made up of a single 150,000-word sentence."

And I thought Faulkner's sentences were long. Better get ready to hold your breath for a while when you read this one...
