Becoming a Faulknerian The Bear So that s why Sam Fathers is named that, and now I know who he is A beautiful book. Classic Faulkner style and themes Both a coming of age story and a melancholy perspective on how much we re losing as the big woods get smaller One chapter was previously published as a short story The Bear. Faulkner allowed me to think deeply about my own hunting experiences and relationship to the land I hunt I would highly recommend this work to others who hunt.
