Stories and episodes from novels forming a panoramic history of life in William Faulkner's metaphorical kingdom -- Yoknapatawpha County, Mississippi -- and including three stories of almost novel length -- "The Bear," "Spotted Horses," and "Old Man." Faulkner's address on receiving the Nobel Prize for Literature, and Malcolm Cowley's acclaimed 1946 Introduction, now recognized as an indispensable document for all Faulkner readers.

Five stars simply for "The Bear," one of Faulkner's masterpieces. Otherwise, four stars for the collection as a whole. ( )

Faulkner still reigns fairly high on my list of authors that I can always stand to read more of and always seem to congratulate myself for doing so afterwards. ( )

This book is pure greatness. All the best of Faulkner rolled into one easy-to-carry volume. If you are too cheap to buy all of Faulkner's novels, at least buy this one. You will not regret it. ( )
