* AuthorAvatar: Stingo is almost exactly like William Styron. Just like Styron, he's from South, born in 1925, served in the Navy during WorldWarII, graduated from Duke University, worked for [=McGraw=]-Hill, and ended up writing a controversial novel about Nat Turner. Stingo's name is never revealed, but it's implied that his last name starts with "St".
