Faulkner Conference Continues
You always know it's time for the Faulkner Conference when The Dude appears in the Square Books' window. This year's conference kicked off last night with a showing of the original film version of "Sanctuary'' -- "The Story of Temple Drake." I speak tonight at 8 p.m. on "Crime Fiction and Faulkner'' along with Jere Hoar, author of "The Hit.'' The main trick will be having a coherent talk after two hours at City Grocery. Like Bill, both Jere and I like good bourbon. We'll be at the Nutt Auditorium on the Ole Miss campus. Noir, booze, Faulkner. Hope to see you there.
