John Duvall

Please join me in congratulating John Duvall, professor of English, for the recent publication of his edition of William Faulkner’s 1949 story collection,  Knight’s Gambit , published by the UP of Mississippi

Originally published in 1949, William Faulkner’s  Knight’s Gambit is a collection of six stories written in the 1930s and 1940s that focus on the criminal investigations of Yoknapatawpha’s long-time county attorney, Gavin Stevens. Using four previously unknown Faulkner typescripts, along with other manuscript and typescript evidence, John presents an edition of  Knight’s Gambit that restores over four thousand words that editors cut from the stories. 

Congratulations, Professor Duvall!
