About this title


William Faulkner: The Man and the Artist: A Biography by Stephen B. Oates, Author of Let The Trumpets Sound, Harper & Row, First Edition, First Printing, 1987. This is a Collectible, Hardcover Book and Dust Jacket. In this first full-scale life of William Faulkner for a general audience, award-winning biographer Stephen B. Oates has produced a biographical masterpiece: a soundly researched, brilliantly written narrative that reveals the extraordinary and turbulent life of an American literary giant. Simply FASCINATING!

From Publishers Weekly:

Scholarly biographies of Faulkner there have been and analytical studies aplenty, but here for the first time Oates, author of prize-winning biographies of Abraham Lincoln and Martin Luther King, uses novelistic techniques to reenact the flesh-and-blood story of the life. It is a tale as turbulent and engrossing as any of the novels and stories in his monumental Yoknapatawpha saga. As though through Faulkner's own eyes, we see his development from youthful poet to Nobel Prizewinning novelist "with a taste for the macabre and a tragic sense of history"; his troubled marriage and prolonged affairs with younger women; his grueling stints as a Hollywood screenwriter; his courageous early espousal of black rights; his near-disastrous drinking bouts. From it all emerges a compelling portrait of the man: chivalrous and compassionate, yet "difficult" and essentially lonely. This is narrative biography at its best.
