A deft hand has woven this narrative. . . . This book rings true. The New York Times
From the Publisher:
Faulkner's first novel, Soldiers' Pay (1926), is among the most memorable works to emerge from the First World War. Through the story of a wounded veteran's homecoming, it examines the impact of soldiers' return from war on the people-particularly the women-who were left behind.
Author Bio
William Faulkner
William Faulkner was born in Mississippi, where he lived most of his life. He had little formal education. He dropped out of high school in 10th grade and joined the Canadian Air Force, just missing World War I. He was later admitted to the University of Mississippi as a special student, but dropped out after a year to write for a newspaper in New Orleans, where he also wrote fiction and published his first novel, SOLDIERS' PAY. After a brief trip to Europe in his late 20s, he settled down in Mississippi to write, and in 1929 published SARTORIS, the first volume in his Yoknapatawpha saga, which followed the fortunes of several Southern families as they rise and fall from Civil War times to the mid-20th century. Faulkner was also, briefly, a Hollywood script writer in the 1930s, but not a very successful one. The author of numerous novels and short stories, most of them set in his native state, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1950. He also won the Pulitzer and the National Book Award, among other honors. Faulkner once listed the things he needed in order to write as "paper, tobacco, food, and a little whiskey." At the age of 64, he was injured in a fall from a horse and died shortly thereafter of a heart attack.
