The Office: Faulkner added on this room after 1950. The plot outline of A Fable is written on the wall in Faulkner’s hand. He used graphite pencil and a red grease pencil to set down this working plan of the novel which is about Holy Week set during World War I. The outline is similar to the story board techniques he used when he worked as a screenwriter in Hollywood. The small table where the typewriter rests was given to him by his mother, and he used it virtually all the years he lived at Rowan Oak, sometimes moving it outside with one of the Adirondack chairs to enjoy the outdoors while he wrote. To the left of the door is a small fold-top desk made by Faulkner and his stepson Malcolm.
