about this book

Winner of the National Book Award

Forty-two stories make up this magisterial collection by the writer who stands at the pinnacle of modern American fiction. Compressing an epic expanse of vision into hard and wounding narratives, Faulkner's stories evoke the intimate textures of place, the deep strata of history and legend, and all the fear, brutality, and tenderness of the human condition.

These tales are not set only in Yoknapatawpha County, but in Beverly Hills and in France during World War I. They are populated by such characters as the Faulknerian archetypes Flem Snopes and Quentin Compson, as well as by ordinary men and women who emerge in these pages so sharply and indelibly that they dwarf the protagonists of most novels.

Stories include:

Barn Burning
A Bear Hunt
Two Soldiers
A Rose for Emily
Uncle Willy
That Evening Sun
Red Leaves
Lo!
Victory
All the Dead Pilots
Wash, Fox Hunt
The Brooch
My Grandmother
Mountain Victory
Beyond
Black Music
The Leg
Mistral
Divorce in Naples
Carcassonne

and many others.
