Click on the above photographs to enlarge them. And then see more following the links below.
Thanks to David James for sending me this link to the National Public Radio story about William Faulkner At The University of Virigina tapes now online.
The link below is to the NPR story that aired July 15th 2010.
The link below has more than the audio. It also has other material from the UVA collection of the time Faulkner spent at UVA as Writer In Residence back in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Included are some rare photos and copies of letters. Transcripts of the audio sessions are provided so it is possible to read them as well as listen to them. This is sort of like the holy grail of unseen and unheard Faulkner material and it is now online.
