John Edgar Wideman (born June 14, 1941) is an American author of novels, memoirs, short stories, essays, and other works. Among the most critically acclaimed American writers of his generation, he was the first person to win the PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction twice. His writing is known for experimental techniques and a focus on the African-American experience.
Wideman has a Faulknerian concern with place, and with tracing roots. There is a "begat chart" at the beginning of the book, telling you how the characters in the pages that follow are all related. And his writing can be Faulknerian, too, ranging back and forth in time, swooping into a character's thoughts and then back outside his or her head, often even blurring the line between fiction and non-fiction.
