Between 1928 and 1942, William Faulkner wrote over a half-dozen of his greatest novels, including The Sound and the Fury, As I Lay Dying and Light in August. Faulkner referred to this period as “one matchless time.” “One Matchless Time” is also the title of a new Faulkner biography, written by Vermont author Jay Parini. Neal Charnoff talks with Parini about his new book.
“One Matchless Time: A Life of William Faulkner” is published by Harper Collins. Jay Parini will be appearing at Book King in Rutland, Tuesday night at seven.
