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.
