Very interesting this bit about Faulkner...especially in light of what was
said...in French...in the new issue of Le Magazine Littéraire which is a
special issue about the polar with all kinds of studies of all the genres,
many authors...etc...etc...106 pages of srious crime stuff...and page 44/45
an article by Jean-Baptiste Baronian titled ³Willam Faulkner Polars
clandestins² and the smaller title is (in translation) can we consider some
books by Faulkner as noir starting with the famous Sactuary? In any case the
author was a big fan of crime publications¹...which tries to change the
usual view in France that Faulkner was no noir or crime writer....
For those of you who read French this Mag Litt is a must...
