Format: Paperback
Initially, John Faulkner was heading toward being the "writing Faulkner.' Although clearly eclipsed by his brother's fame, John is a fine writer and stylist in his own right. John has his own voice and own style, even if the heavy influence of the Faulkner family and the Mississippi delta can be clearly heard. This book, althoug essential reading for any student of William Faulkner interested in the family and its history, stands firmly on its own feet. Highly recommended.

Format: Paperback
Dollar Cotton, written by John Faulkner, is by far the best depiction of the life and times in the flat, "black dirt", alluvial fan known as the Mississippi Delta during the era when "cotton was king". The book is an excellent read for anyone, but will hold a distinct fascination for those who are familiar with the south in general and the "Delta" in particular.
Otis Town is not Faulkner creation, as stated on the book's back cover, but rather a composite of men who came to the Delta from the hills of Tennessee and Mississippi and carved an empire out of a virtual wilderness. Having grown up in the "Delta" I have known several "old man Towns", one of them being my father. Each and every anecdote mentioned by Faulkner happened in the "Delta", not necessarily to one man, but they all happened. Faulkner describes perfectly the habits and mind-set of the black and white inhabitants of both the "Delta" and the "Hills".
Dollar Cotton is a must for anyone interested in life in the rural south.
