About this title:

Synopsis:

William Faulkner was a literary genius, and one of America's most important and influential writers. Drawing on previously unavailable sources -- including letters, memoirs, and interviews with Faulkner's daughter and lovers -- Jay Parini has crafted a biography that delves into the mystery of this gifted and troubled writer. His Faulkner is an extremely talented, obsessive artist plagued by alcoholism and a bad marriage who somehow transcends his limitations. Parini weaves the tragedies and triumphs of Faulkner's life in with his novels, serving up a biography that's as engaging as it is insightful.

About the Author: Jay Parini grew up in Scranton, Pennsylvania. He spent seven years in Scotland during the Vietnam era. Although his home is Vermont, where he teaches at Middlebury College, he has lived for extended periods in England and Italy. A poet, novelist, and biographer, he is married to Devon Jersild, a writer, and they have three sons.

Longtime friends, Jay Parini and Ken Ciongoli cowrote Beyond the Godfather: Italian American Writers on the Real Italian American Experience.
