About the Author

John Faulkner (1901-1963) was a native and lifetime resident of the Mississippi hill country and Delta region. A writer and accomplished, self-taught painter, he also worked, at various times, as an engineer, airplane pilot, World War II naval officer, and farmer. Of the number of books Faulkner wrote, he is best remembered for the novels "Men Working" and "Dollar Cotton," and the memoir "My Brother Bill," about William Faulkner.

Reviews

The achievement of the book is the author's complete lack of condescension toward his characters. Their moving story is simply and amusingly told, without diagnosis or prognosis, in the terms of their own bewildered lives. --The Nation No idealization, Men Working is the most human book that has been written about WPA workers, the saddest and the funniest. --Time Magazine Remarkable . . . in its sense and simplicity, its justness of observation, the ease with which it hits the nail so frequently squarely on the head, above all for its entirely unobtrusive compassion. --New York Times Book Review
