About the Author

James G. Watson is Professor of English at the University of Tulsa.


"Intersecting biography and criticism, this book is essential for [library] collections supporting Faulkner and American literature." - Choice "Displaying an astonishing familiarity with every day of Faulkner's life and every line of his work, Watson demonstrates that, from the beginning of his career, the Mississippi writer used the people (including his father), anxieties, and experiences of his life in nearly every facet of his fiction... Watson's study will help revive interest in the very early works and will give additional resonance to several of Faulkner's novels, particularly The Sound and the Fury, Sanctuary, and Absalom, Absalom!" - Library Journal "The relations between biography and fiction, between experience and creation, form a seamless tapestry under Watson's expert hand... Watson's book is a delicately nuanced study of a complex and compelling writer, whose work continues to yield fresh surprises. It brings us closer than before to the man he must have been and earns for the book a place on the list of essential Faulkner studies." - Faulkner Newsletter
