Novelist William Styron dies at 81
William Styron, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of "The Confessions of Nat Turner" and other novels whose explorations of the darkest corners of the human mind and experience were charged by his own near-suicidal demons, died Wednesday. He was 81.
I haven't had the chance to read Styron, though Nat Turner has had a place on my to read list for some time. After the description above, I'm much more inclined to give it a read.
