More About My Brother Bill by John Faulkner; Jimmy Faulkner
 
 
 
Overview
Perhaps no one knew the intensely private William Faulkner better than his brother John. At the time of Bill's funeral, a reporter remarked that seeing John walking the streets of Oxford, Mississippi, was like encountering the ghost of his brother. Indeed John and Bill were mirrors of one another in many ways. In this memoir we find an intimate and at times humorous portrait of William and his brothers from childhood through adulthood. John provides a keen view of the local characters and situations that Bill later used in his novels. John provides us a rare look into the soul of the Nobel Prize-winning author of such classics as The Sound and the Fury, As I Lay Dying, and Absalom, Absalom My Brother Bill was first published in 1963, the year following William Faulkner's death. This edition includes seventeen photographs and a foreword by Jimmy Faulkner, son of the author and nephew of the subject (whom he knew as Brother Will).
