Returning home to Jefferson, Mississippi, at the end of the First World War, young Bayard Sartoris grieves the loss of his twin brother, John.

A story of a decaying family confronting the debilitating effects of war, Sartoris is a commentary on social class and family conditions in the post-war world of the American South.

New Orleans sketches by William Faulkner( Book )

100 editions published between 1953 and 2017 in 6 languages and held by 2,821 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his first six months in New Orleans, Faulkner made a commitment to fiction writing. Here in one volume are the pieces he wrote while in the French Quarter, published locally in the Times-Picayune and in the Double Dealer. New Orleans Sketches broadcasts seeds that would take root in later works. In their themes and motifs these sketches and stories foreshadow the intense personal vision and style that would characterize Faulkner's mature fiction. As his sketches take on parallels with Christian liturgy and as they portray such characters as an idiot boy similar to Benjy Compson, they reveal evidence of his early literary sophistication
