William Faulkner's Office
Rowan Oak, Oxford, Mississippi

According to legend, after Faulkner outlined the seven-day plot of his Pulitzer Prize winner, A Fable, on the walls of his home (he kept a bed in his office), his wife demanded the text be painted over. Outraged, Faulkner rewrote it and shellacked the wall, where the writing remains today.

Open Tuesday to Sunday; $5 admission (free on Wednesdays); www.olemiss.edu/depts/u_museum/rowan_oak/interactive.html
