One Matchless Time is a sympathetic, sweeping evocation of the life and work of William Faulkner. It has been three decades since Joseph Blotner published his massive, twovolume biography. Since then, a great deal of new material has turned upfor example, Faulkner's revealing early letters to his parents and late letters to Joan Williams, one of several young lovers who came into his life in the final decades. Parini, who has taught Faulkner to undergraduates at Dartmouth and Middlebury for nearly thirty years, brings vividly to life Faulkner's complex fictional world in the context of his life, using the one to illuminate the other. His Faulkner is an immensely gifted, obsessive artist plagued by alcoholism and a bad marriage, but someone who rose above his limitations to become a figure of major importance on the stage of world literature. Readers of biography Fans of William Faulkner's work Readers interested in American literature Praise for One Matchless Time: "The time is right for a biography like Jay Parini's One Matchless Time . . . Mr. Parini is especially attuned to Faulkner's development as a writer . . . [This is] a balanced explication of the work through what details Faulkner left behind . . . By thoughtfully steering readers from the life back to the work, he encourages us to explore the sprawling, vinecovered manse of the man's fiction for ourselves." Wall Street Journal
