Reviews

A magisterial, multidisciplinary study of Faulkner that shakes the dust off his canonization.--Kirkus Reviews [starred review]
Michael Gorra is one of the finest critical minds at work in literature today, and this masterly reassessment of William Faulkner could not be more timely. Faulkner is a central figure in American fiction and, indeed, in American history, a voice as resonant in today's troubled world as it was in his own time. Gorra asks hard questions about the novelist and the man, and is unflinching in answering them. This is a momentous and thrilling book.--John Banville
