A little-known history of both families and the home Faulkner loved and named Rowan Oak. n 1930, Will and Sallie Bryant deeded and financed the family home—The Bailey Place—in Oxford, Mississippi to William Faulkner. Sally Stone Trotter, Will and Sallie’s granddaughter, writes a little-known history of both families and the home Faulkner loved and named Rowan Oak. Referencing fifty, never-before-published letters from Faulkner to her grandparents and mother (dating from 1930 to 1947), combined with a genealogist’s encyclopedic knowledge of her family history, Trotter crafts a compelling biography of a place that changed our literary landscape.
