About the Author

Carol Siri Johnson grew up in Lowville, east of Lake Ontario and west of the Adirondacks. For undergraduate school she went to Mount Holyoke, a women's college in central Massachusetts. Then she moved to Brooklyn where she worked as a real estate agent. After starting her own business (“Greenwood Heights Realty”), she tired of the field and returned to school, graduating with a Ph.D. in English Literature from The Graduate Center of the City of New York in 1995. After working as a technical writer in the computer industry for seven years, she returned to academia and is now an associate professor at New Jersey Institute of Technology. She has one daughter and has a tendency to get really cranky, so watch out.

Format: Paperback
This fine interpretation should be used by any person who endeavors to understand the body of Faulkner's work. I daresay even old W.F. himself would have benefited from reading this text. I only wish I had had assistance like this when I was in school.

As an impartial audience, I MUST say that this book displays ABSOLUTE GENIUS! It's clear that Carol Johnson should receive the MacArthur Award. This book should be on display at the Library of Congress next to the Declaration of Independence.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This gloss on a major American work can be read comfortably by folks of all ages. It opens up the layers of meaning in a challenging work, not as a substitute, but as a supplement to enrich the reading and understanding.

Format: Paperback
Carol Siri Johnson is an expert and daring writer. She is the best writer I have ever read. Her book, whatever it's called, is so good that I cried when I read it. My teacher gave me an A+ for the whole year because of a book report I did about it. Carol is like the mother I have never had because I am an orphan. And oh, by the way, I love cows too.
