Perhaps no one knew the intensely private William Faulkner better than his brother John. At the time of Bill's funeral, a reporter remarked that seeing John walking the streets of Oxford, Mississippi, was like encountering the ghost of his brother. Indeed John and Bill were mirrors of one another in many ways. In this memoir we find an intimate and at times humorous portrait of the Faulkner brothers from childhood through adulthood. John provides a keen view of the local characters and situations that Bill later used in his novels, including such classics as The Sound and the Fury, As I Lay Dying, and Absalom, Absalom!
My Brother Bill was first published in 1963, the year following William Faulkner's death. This edition includes seventeen photographs and a foreword by Jimmy Faulkner, son of the author and nephew of the subject.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Sentimental, warm, and honest.
Saturday Review
Splendidly evokes the flavor of boyhood in a small southern town.
Time
For anyone interested in William Faulkner and his writings (and everyone should be), this memoir of him by his younger brother is essential reading.
New York Times Book Review
Rooted so deep in the soil from which the Faulkner clan sprang that it is worth tomes of Faulkner criticism.
Atlantic Monthly
This affectionate memoir brings us to understand why Faulkner became the literary artist he did.
Christian Science Monitor
Sentimental, warm, and honest.
Saturday Review
