Editors Note Originally published in 1974 as a two-volume edition, and extensively updated and condensed in a 1991 reissue, Joseph Blotner's Faulkner: A Biography remains the quintessential resource on the Nobel laureate's life and work. The Chicago Tribune said, "This is an overwhelming book, indispensable for anyone interested in the life and works of our greatest contemporary novelist." That invaluable 1991 edition is now back in print. Reviewing a recent work on William Faulkner, Publishers Weekly said flatly, "There isn't any startling new material to supersede Joseph Blotner's massive...biography."|Blotner, a friend and one-time colleague of Faulkner, brings a vivid, personalized tone to the biography, as well as a sense of masterful, comprehensive scholarship. Using letters, personal interviews, reminiscences, critical work, and other primary sources, Blotner creates a detailed and nuanced portrait of Faulkner from his birth in 1897 to his death in 1962. Faulkner is authoritative and essential both for literary scholars and for anyone wanting to know about the life of one of the nation's preeminent authors.
