Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An essential collection of William Faulkners mature nonfiction work, updated, with an abundance of new material.

This unique volume includes Faulkners Nobel Prize acceptance speech, a review of Hemingways The Old Man and the Sea (in which he suggests that Hemingway has found God), and newly collected gems, such as the acerbic essay “On Criticism” and the beguiling “Note on A Fable.” It also contains eloquently opinionated public letters on everything from race relations and the nature of fiction to wild-squirrel hunting on his property. This is the most comprehensive collection of Faulkners brilliant non-fiction work, and a rare look into the life of an American master.

About the Author

William Faulkner was born in Mississippi in 1897. A legend of American letters, he is the author of The Sound and the Fury, Absalom, Absalom!, As I Lay Dying, and many other works. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1950, and died in 1962.

James B. Meriwether is an expert on Faulkner who has been editing Faulkners fiction and nonfiction work since the late 1950s. He lives with his wife, Anne, in South Carolina.
