Happy Birthday, Mr. Faulkner

It is the birthday of William Faulkner (September 25, 1897 – July 6, 1962).  

I wrote about him here earlier this year.

Mr. Faulkner didn't comfort us or pretty things up, but he did

stir our emotions and taught us things about our Southern 

selves.  Looking for a week-end read?  Try As I Lay Dying
