William Faulkner Reads From His Works On MGM Records LP

This is a really rare record. Hard to find before Ebay. Now one or two show up per year.
Before the internet and Ebay it was impossible to find. Produced by Jean Stein who also did the Paris Review interview with William Faulkner.
 William Faulkner Reads from His Work. Arcady Series, MGM E3617 ARC, 1957. Faulkner reads from The Sound and The Fury (side one) and Light in August (side two). Produced by Jean Stein, who also did the liner notes with Edward Cole. Cover photograph by Robert Capa (Magnum).

And click on the link below to find audio of all Faulkner's sessions with students at The University of Virginia from 1957 and 1958.. It is a real treat. You can hear the great man himself and his dry wonderful sense of humor.  You may have to copy and paste the link below and search  on yahoo or google.
