Requiem for a Nun.
Requiem for a Nun.
(Faulkner, William)

Requiem for a Nun.

NY: Random House, (1951). First edition. One of 750 copies, signed by Faulkner. This novel was written as a sequel to Sanctuary, and Faulkner structured it as a three-part play. This treatment allowed it to be adapted for the stage by Ruth Ford, though its run on Broadway in 1959 was unsuccessful. The staging of Requiem was better received in France, where the text was translated by Albert Camus. Ownership inscription to front paste-down, some wear to edges, spine lightly sunned, else a near fine copy. Original acetate wrapper present, showing some discoloration and loss at head of spine and edges. Item #26619
