Faulkner and Delillo Writing for Sports Illustrated

A good find by the LA Times Books Blog that we picked up on Twit­ter: Some­where back in the Sports Illus­trat­ed archive, you’ll find William Faulkn­er writ­ing in 1955 about see­ing his first hock­ey game (the Rangers v. the Mon­tre­al Cana­di­ens at Madi­son Square Gar­den). And then we have Don Delil­lo doing his own piece in 1972, well before he wrote his first big nov­els. Both pieces, by the way, are col­lect­ed in the 2004 book, Fifty Years of Great Writ­ing.
