In the spotlight is William Styron, the famed author of novels that included “Sophie’s Choice” and “The Confessions of Nat Turner.” Joining the great author in the spotlight is William Styron biographer Jim West, professor of English, emeritus, at Pennsylvania State University. He is a biographer and book historian, and the author of several books, including “William Styron: A Life.”

We discuss:

>> The controversies spawned by Styron’s most important novels

>> Writing with a vision rather than an outline

>> Autonomy of characters

>> The depression he suffered

>> The unspoken competition with Truman Capote

>> The spoken competition with Norman Mailer

>> His place in literary history

>> Etc.
