Book Overview
In 1989, the Caribbean writer Edouard Glissant visited Rowan Oak, William Faulkner's home in Oxford, Mississippi. His visit spurred him to write a revelatory book about the work of one of our greatest but still least-understood American writers. A fascinating way to read Faulkner. . . . Glissant's] case is nothing less than that, no matter how Faulkner's personal Furies twisted his public speech, Faulkner was a great, world-beating multiculturalist.--Jonathan Levi, Los Angeles Times Book Review A sharp, challenging, and wholly unique tour of Yoknapatawpha County. -- Kirkus Reviews Passionate. . . . Glissant's prose sometimes vies with Faulkner's for intricacy and evocative nuance. --Scott McLemee, Newsday Glissant tries to engage Faulkner on many fronts simultaneously, positioning himself as a critic, a fellow artist and as a descendant of slaves. . . He makes a convincing case that Faulkner is not just another 'dead white male author.'--Scott Yarbrough, Raleigh News & Observer An] ambitious and, at times, rambunctious expedition into Yoknapatawpha County. --Christine Schwartz Hartley, New York Times Book Review
