Uncollected Stories of William Faulkner

New York: Random House, 1979.

xvii, 716 pages.

Edited by Joseph Blotner.


Though the title seems self-contradictory, the purpose of the book is quite clear: to draw together Faulkner stories that to date had not yet been collected into a single volume.


Note: Title links lead to more detailed bibliographical and publication information on each work, not to the work itself.
