My Favourite Author



My favourite author is Faulkner. As in William. He scares me. Whenever I want to feel bad about my own writing I read Faulkner. Patrick White does the same thing to me, but for different reasons. There's a certain visionary quality about Faulkner's writing, a certain solidity to the prose. It's like reading thunder - if thunder was made of stone.

One of my dearest friends introduced me to Faulkner a few years ago. I love her and hate her for it.

Faulkner considers scaring your humble blogger, this time with an axe.
