Faulkner reading ‘As I Lay Dying’

May 28, 2012

William Faulkner’s As I Lay Dying should have been required reading at Ole Miss. It wasn’t, but I did read chapters while sitting under a tree on his estate, Rowan Oak, which is near the campus.

What you may not know is Faulkner wrote the novel in six weeks while working at a power plant in the winter of 1929-30.

HarperCollins has Faulkner, himself, reading from his masterpiece.

    One of my all time favorites. I didn’t go to Ole Miss, but all of my favorite writers did: Faulkner, Barry Hannah, Larry Brown, Tom Franklin and Brad Watson.
