WILLIAM FAULKNER READS

by | Read by William Faulkner

Classics • 49 min. • Audio Program • ©

This reissue is touted as historic, the first recordings that the legendary American novelist made of his own writings. Included are his famous Nobel Prize acceptance speech and excerpts from AS I LAY DYING, A FABLE, and THE OLD MAN. Faulkner's 57-year-old voice is weak and gravelly from hard drinking. One would expect a laconic Southern drawl, but while Mississippi thickly colors his pronunciation, he rushes through his texts as if late for an appointment. Therefore, he expresses very little besides haste. Y.R. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 01]
