I found it boring, extremely repetitive and terribly non-symetrical in chronology. Bounces all around the world of Faulkner. Don't waste your money reading about Faulkner - just read him. The one good book like this is Cleanth Brooks on Faulkner's mythical county.

Gray more than does justice to Faulkner's literary prowess! He delves deep into the mindset of Faulkner and the South during the pre and post Civil War time frame. Gray also deals with Faulkner's social commentary, and creative imagination when portraying characters. ALL in all, a superb biography and critical study!
