Drinking Faulkner’s Water

The Atlanta Journal & Constitution says that William Faulkner’s hometown of Oxford, Mississippi, remains a station for many writers.

Acclaimed author Pat
Conroy dubbed Oxford "the Vatican City of Southern letters" with good
reason — not many cities of its size can claim even a handful of
published authors. Oxford seems to have one on every corner.

"There’s a climate in Oxford that sustains writers," says Dean
Faulkner Wells. "There are people here who love the written word so
much they will put up with all kinds of [nonsense] from the men and
women who create those words."
