About this title


Based on Faulkner collections at two universities, a previously unexamined private collection, and interviews with Faulkner's associates, this biography profiles the often contradictory personality of the famed Southern author

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. Photos. 25,000 first printing; $30,000 ad/promo; author tour.
