      EVENT DETAILS
      Carl Rollyson Author Presentation: The Life of William Faulkner

      Join us for a conversation with author Carl Rollyson on his groundbreaking biography of Nobel Prize Winner, William Faulkner
      Heretofore no biographer has integrated William Faulkner’s screenplays, fiction, and life into one narrative. The result is a new Faulkner, moving back and forth between Hollywood and home, creating scripts and novels that influence one another in ways not previously understood. The significance of Faulkner’s family life, especially his marriage to Estelle Oldham, receives fresh treatment in discussions of her own writing and of unpublished material. The result is an unprecedented intimate portrayal of the writer and his world, presenting the minute particulars of a life that Johnson and Boswell extolled as the paramount mission of biography.

      Carl will be interviewed by Lawrence Wells.

      Browseabout Books is selling signed copies of the book via phone and online orders. The book also may be purchased through University of Virginia Press.

      Online program presented by the Lewes Public Library.
