University of Virginia Puts Out Faulkner Audio Archives
RICHMOND, VA (AP).- Fans of Southern literature have read William Faulkner for decades. Now they can hear the author speak.

The University of Virginia has published an online audio archive of the Nobel- and Pulitzer Prize-winning author's two-year term as writer-in-residence at the Charlottesville school in the late 1950s. In the recordings, Faulkner talks about his books, his career and the events of the day.

"Faulkner at Virginia: An Audio Archive" contains about 28 hours of the author's speeches, readings of his works and his answers to more than 1,400 questions posed by students and other audience members.

U.Va. professor Stephen Railton led the effort to put together the archive. He hopes the recordings will lead people to rediscover Faulkner's books.
