As I Lay Dieting, "Abe's Saloon! Abe's Saloon!" Sound like Faulkner with a twist? It is-bad Faulkner, or, to be exact, some of the best of bad Faulkner composed by the hundreds who have entered the Faux Faulkner Contest. Here, too, are outstanding Faulkner parodies from the past-even one written by Faulkner himself. Caricatures.

About the Author:

Dean Faulkner Wells, born in 1936,  is the niece of William Faulkner and the daughter of Dean Swift Faulkner, Faulkner's youngest brother, and Louise Hale.   Her father was killed before she was born in a plane crash in 1935.  When she was growing up, she was entertained by stories told by her famous uncle, whom she called "Pappy" at his home Rowan Oak.   William Faulkner told ghost stories to Dean,  his daughter Jill, and his granddaughter Vicki.

Dean Faulkner Wells has retold three of his ghost stories from her childhood in The Ghosts of Rowan Oak:  William Faulkner's Ghost Stories for Children. She has written stories and articles which have appeared in Parade Magazine, Ladies Home Journal, and the Paris Review.  She is also the editor of  The Great American Writers' Cookbook and The Best of Bad Faulkner and the author of the children's book Belle-Duck at the Peabody.


Wells was educated in Geneva and at the University of Mississippi.  She  married Larry Wells and together they live today in Oxford, Mississippi. They run Yoknapatawpha Press.
