From the Publisher
"The publication of a facsimile edition of this document is much to be desired. Because of its exceptionally early date, and because it is very much a working manuscript, it is of considerably greater importance than many of the Faulkner facsimiles already available." Michael Millgate
"In this meticulous volume, with its detailed apparatus, McHaney places the book firmly in the context of Faulkner's life with all its shaping circumstances and influences." Joseph Blotner
