Author of the Day: William Styron

I came later to William Styron, only reading Sophie's Choice because it was on the Modern Library list. Styron's books appear on many other "Must Read" lists and have won several prizes.

Here is his bibliography, from oldest to most recent. Those I have read are in red; those on my TBR shelf are in blue.

Lie Down in Darkness

The Long March

Set This House on Fire

The Confessions of Nat Turner

In the Clap Shack

Sophie's Choice (reviewed here)

This Quiet Dust

Darkness Visible

A Tidewater Morning

Havanas in Camelot

  1. This is one of my favourite writers. Darkness Visible and This Quiet Dust are my personal favourites, both non fiction and worth rereading. Lie Down in Darkness, Set This House on Fire, The Confessions of Nat Turner, and The Long March I have also read, and enjoyed every one immensely. I'm so glad you've discovered this writer.
    Suicide Run: Five Tales of the Marine Corps was recently released. It will be fun for me to watch what you read and what you think of his books.
