About the Cover

“Taylor Grocery,” original oil on board, 11 1/8 x 14 1/8 inches, by Grace A. Buchanan. Known now for the best catfish in Mississippi, Taylor Grocery in Faulkner’s time was a dry goods store in Taylor, a tiny town near Oxford. Taylor’s rickety porch offered a view of the train depot, the site where Temple Drake stepped off a train full of students headed to Starkville for a college game and into Sanctuary’s nightmare journey to become part of Yoknapatawpha legend.
