Finding Faulkner

Cleanth Brooks' study of Faulkner's Yoknapatawpha County arrived, but as yet no Team of Rivals. Most frustrating. Anyway, I found myself leafing through this handsome first edition and feeling myself transported back in time.

  1. That's an excellent book. Don't lend it out. It'll never come back.

  2. I don't plan to let the book out of my sight, rick. Any thoughts on Stephen Oates' The Man and the Artist?

  3. Oates' book is what I would call a "dramatized" biography. In my opinion you can't go wrong with Joel Williamson's "William Faulkner and Southern History."

    By the way, I responded to your email of earlier in the week but fear something went awry.
