One emerges from reading it with fresh understanding of Faulkner both as man and writer, with feelings of sympathy and, even more, admiration.-- "Times Higher Education Supplement"
Any future Faulkner biographer--and there will be others, rest assured of that--will find it difficult to surpass what Minter has accomplished.--Jonathan Yardley "Washington Post"
One emerges from reading [Minter's book] with a fresh understanding of Faulkner both as man and writer, with feelings of sympathy and, even more, admiration.--Richard Gray "Times Higher Education Supplement"
The great virtue of David Minter's book is that he knows that the question of who a man was is less interesting than that of whom he wished to become . . . It is in the poems and the novels that we can trace the self to which Faulkner aspired.--Lachlan Mackinnon "Times Literary Supplement"
