For sale, one Nobel Prize in literature: The Faulkner auction
New Yorkers got a preview Wednesday of an auction rarity: A Nobel Prize for literature. The 1950 medal belonged to William Faulkner, one of America's best-known and respected novelists. It comes with a hand-edited draft of Faulkner's acceptance speech; together, auction house Sotheby's expects those items to sell for $500,000 to $1 million.
