9780099577034: This Quiet Dust

In This Quiet Dust, the first book of non-fiction by the Pulitzer Prize-wining author of Lie Down in Darkness and Sophie's Choice, William Styron addresses great moral issues with passion and precision.

His writing is at once meditative and engaged, personal and erudite, whether he is covering the dark side of the American and European dream, exploring the greats of American literature, or exploring the nature of the American South. Throughout, Styron's warmth, humour and candour, coupled with a refusal to judge, make for stirring and stimulating reading.
