9780878052615: Conversations with William Styron (Literary Conversations)

Willie Morris writes: "I've known William Styron for more than twenty years. I consider him one of the finest writers in our literature. I've been with Bill in many moods and moments across various locales. As he talks casually with his trusted friends, drink in hand and a fine dinner waiting, the snow outside or an ocean or a southern spring, his fun and sorrow have in these interludes with wives and women and comrades and children and dogs-in beloved places from Roxbury to Manhattan to the Caribbean to the Mississippi Delta-helped make life matter. "Bill is an artist of great moral courage, but when you know him well you don't quite think of him in this way. Isn't that funny? This fine volume demonstrates something of his passions and commitments as a twentieth-century man, and also conveys the spirit of his informality and colloquialism. Here and there in these interviews are suggestions of his genius, which he has been reluctant to reveal except in his immemorial fiction, or to those he cares for in private moments of sadness, joy, celebration, grief, and laughter." -from the back cover

Book Description University Press of Mississippi, United States, 2005. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Limited. 223 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. This is a selection of interviews with William Styron published during the period 1951-1984, from the months just following publication of Lie Down in Darkness, his first novel, to the period after publication of Sophie s Choice. Some twenty-five interviews are reprinted here, including six that are translated from the French and published in this country for the first time. Styron is one of the most frequently interviewed writers of his generation. Unlike Faulkner, to whom he was often compared early in his career, Styron has learned to be a patient and cooperative interview subject. His comments in these interviews reveal much about the sources of his fiction and about his early life. He also reacts to attacks on his work, comments on his mission as a writer, and describes his compositional habits. This is a useful collection for those who wish to know Styron better and to be guided by his conversations to clearer insights into his writing. For scholars and for general readers alike it will have much appeal.It gives the reader a sense of being in Styron s presence, of enjoying his flashes of wit and intellect, and of realizing how remarkable his achievement has been and how universally he is admired.
