Wow, that is not at all how I imagined Faulkner's voice. I expected it to be more craggily.

I hope they post about Nathanael West. He was a kook!

I am old enough to recall Poirier saying of Norman Mailer (he had written a book on him), while I was at Rutgers as grad student that Mailer was more interesting to read when he was wrong than molst writers when they are right.
