SIMPLY FAULKNER by Philip Weinstein

Book Cover: SIMPLY FAULKNER by Philip Weinstein

William Faulkner is considered to be one of the greatest—and most difficult—American writers of the 20th century. Yet, as author Philip Weinstein demonstrates, the complexity of Faulkner’s writing is inextricably bound up with the depth of his insights and—on another level—is a poignant reflection of the messiness of his life. Written for a general audience, Simply Faulkner offers access to this complicated man’s singular body of work and shows how, more than half a century after his death, Faulkner’s novels still have much to tell us about our tumultuous society.
