Newly re-jacketed William Faulkner Novels Released Today! With new covers designed by John Gall, Vintage Books is re-releasing these three classic novels by Nobel Laureate William Faulkner…
FLAGS IN THE DUST by William Faulkner: The complete text of Faulkner’s third novel, published for the first time in 1973, appeared with his reluctant consent in a much cut version in 1929 as Sartoris.
KNIGHT’S GAMBIT by William Faulkner: Gavin Stevens, the wise and forbearing student of crime and of the folk ways of Yoknapatawpha County, Mississippi, plays the major role in these six stories of violence. In each, Stevens’ sharp insights and ingenious detection uncover the underlying motives.
REQUIEM FOR A NUN by William Faulkner: This sequel to Faulkner’s most sensational, Sanctuary, was written twenty years later but takes up the story of Temple Drake eight years after the events related in Sanctuary. Temple is now married to Gowan Stevens. The book begins when the death sentence is pronounced on the nurse Nancy for the murder of Temple and Gowan’s child. Told partly in prose, partly in play form, REQUIEM FOR A NUN is a haunting exploration of the impact of the past on the present.
