Nobel Prize for Literature

Farewell, Faulkner stuff. Come back soon.

Lots of William Faulkner memorabilia, including his Nobel Prize for Literature, have been on loan and display at the University of Mississippi. Possibly no more, News Editor Jonathan Scott writes as he looks into the possibility of valuable items being sold at auction.

Noted New York critic, scholar and translator, Stark Young, also of Oxford, took exception to this statement. (July 23, 2010, Page 3B)
