William Faulkner never stood taller than five feet, six inches, but in the realm of American literature, he is a giant. More than simply a renowned Mississippi writer, the Nobel-Prize winning novelist and short story writer is acclaimed throughout the world as one of the twentieth century's greatest writers, one who transformed his "postage stamp" of native soil into an apocryphal setting in which he explored, articulated, and challenged the "old verities and truths of the heart."
In this collection, we are proud to present a historic recording of Mr. Faulkner reading his 1949 Nobel acceptance speech and excerpts from As I Lay Dying and The Old Man.

William Faulkner (1897-1962) is widely regarded as one of the greatest of all American novelists and short-story writers. His other works include the novels The Sound and the Fury, The Reivers, and Sanctuary. He twice won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and in 1949 was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature.From AudioFile:
This collection of recordings begins with William Faulkner himself, reading his brilliant Nobel Prize acceptance speech. Faulkner speaks surprisingly briskly and softly, his light drawl setting the tone for the stories that follow. The all-star cast offers masterful performances of these moody tales. Classic stories such as "A Rose for Emily" and "Barn Burning" are especially engaging, and included in the five-CD set are excerpts from As I Lay Dying, A Fable, and Old Man. Hearing Faulkner's words read aloud so beautifully is extraordinary; even those intimidated by his lengthy sentences will enjoy this nearly flawless collection. L.B.F.
