Faulkner on Gavin Stevens, "A Rose for Emily," and Spillane.

In both transcripts and audio from University of Virginia, William Faulkner talks about his lawyer character Gavin Stevens, his mystery-related story "A Rose for Emily," and the use of violence in his work, as well as takes a swipe at Mickey Spillane. He used to see James Joyce in Paris and tells of the role of Winesburg, Ohio's Sherwood Anderson in his first book.
