One of my all-time favorites, William Faulkner, is getting a boost from Oprah Winfrey these days. Of course, some of us are far enough out of the mainstream to have heard the news via Greg Sandow. But composers are talking about it on the Forum page. I’ll just use this space to share two of my favorite Faulknerisms:

“The past is not dead. In fact, it’s not even past.”

“I never know what I think about something until I read what I’ve written on it.”
