FROM THE PUBLISHER - During the first half of 1925 William Faulkner lived in New Orleans. Before that sojourn he had published only poetry and reviews, with the exception of a story and sketch in his college newspaper. But in those six New Orleans months he wrote his first professional fiction. Here, in one volume, are the sixteen signed pieces he contributed to the New Orleans Times-Picayune, and the group of short sketches which he published in the then influential New Orleans literary magazine, The Double Dealer. These first stories and sketches are of special interest now that Faulkner has become one of the leading novelists of our century; for here the reader can find many of the themes, the materials, and the stylistic elements which he was soon to make so particularly his own. In a notable introduction, which illuminates that period when Faulkner was making the transition from poet to novelist, Carvel Collins, whom a national magazine has called ‘Faulkner's best informed critic,’ describes the publication of these New Orleans sketches and the atmosphere in which they were written. Three of them - one of which is perhaps the most important in the volume — appear here for the first time outside their original newspaper publication. In these pages of early Faulkner the reader can now observe a Nobel Prize novelist finding his way toward the great books which he was to create during the next three decades.
