More About the Author

Born in 1897 in New Albany, Mississippi, William Faulkner was the son of a family proud of their prominent role in the history of the south. He grew up in Oxford, Mississippi, and left high school at fifteen to work in his grandfather's bank.

Rejected by the US military in 1915, he joined the Canadian flyers with the RAF, but was still in training when the war ended. Returning home, he studied at the University of Mississippi and visited Europe briefly in 1925.

His first poem was published in The New Republic in 1919. His first book of verse and early novels followed, but his major work began with the publication of The Sound and the Fury in 1929. As I Lay Dying (1930), Sanctuary (1931), Light in August (1932), Absalom, Absalom! (1936) and The Wild Palms (1939) are the key works of his great creative period leading up to Intruder in the Dust (1948). During the 1930s, he worked in Hollywood on film scripts, notably The Blue Lamp, co-written with Raymond Chandler.

William Faulkner was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1949 and the Pulitzer Prize for The Reivers just before his death in July 1962.

This is a very short story and not what I really expected. However I am sure that it was described accurately in the ad.

If you want to know who these white working class citizens against President Obama are, you should read William Faulkner's Barn Burning. Faulkner takes the reader into a community that is often ignored with great literary skill. The white working class is a group that live a life that is as unstable as an urban black community. Barn Burning is a story about the desperation, bitterness, and destruction of the working poor. Of course the concept of working poor is oxymoronic. If a person works, they should not be poor. Faulkner does not leave the reader in a negative emotional state, Barn Burning has an endearing hero. What Tupac would call a rose sprouting up from the concrete. The best part about Barn Burning is that it is a short story, for those lazy readers. After watching Obama's response to the mid-term elections, I would suggest that he read William Faulkner's Barn Burning.
