Though the volume may be imposing, the discrete stories in this collection each create and inhabit a world of life and feeling. Faulkner's craft is at its best in his short fiction, and if I had to take one book of Faulkner with me to a desert island I would without a doubt choose this collection over any of the more frequently lauded novels. —Recommended by Maia, City Lights Books
This magisterial collection of short works by Nobel Prize-winning author William Faulkner reminds readers of his ability to compress his epic vision into narratives as hard and wounding as bullets. Among the 42 selections in this book are such classics as "A Bear Hunt," "A Rose for Emily," Two Soldiers," and "The Brooch."
