Sally Wolff - William Faulkner & the Ledgers of History (August 9, 2011)
"Two years ago, an important literary discovery was revealed -- the existence of a wealthy plantation owner's mid-1800s diary that had been read by William Faulkner and served as the great author's source for names, incidents and details in his prize-winning novels. Sally Wolff uncovered the connection between the diary and Faulkner when she was working on a book about the people who knew Faulkner.
"Sally Wolff is a Southern literature professor at Emory University and author of the book Ledgers of History: William Faulkner, an Almost Forgotten Friendship, and an Antebellum Plantation Diary."
