Signed by the Author on title page. Biography of a US novelist. Educated at Duke University, Styron became part of the American expatriate community in Paris in the 1950s. His first novel, Lie Down in Darkness (1951) , tells of a disturbed young woman who commits suicide. His fourth, the controversial Confessions of Nat Turner (1967, Pulitzer Prize) , vividly evokes the slavery era. His later work includes Sophie's Choice (1979) , examining ramifications of the Holocaust; and Darkness Visible (1990) , a nonfiction account of his depression. His works often treat violent themes in a rich, Faulknerian style. ISBN: 0679410546 (Styron, William, Novelists)
