Summary (From the publisher):

"A Bear Hunt," "A Rose for Emily," "Two Soldiers," "Victory," "The Brooch," "Beyond"-- these are among the forty-two stories that make up this magisterial collection by the writer who stands at the pinnacle of modern American fiction. Compressing an epic expanse of vision into narratives as hard and wounding as bullets, William Faulkner's stories evoke the intimate textures of place, the deep strata of history and legend, and all the fear, brutality, and tenderness of which human beings are capable.

These tales are set not only in Yoknapatawpha County but in Beverly Hills and in France during World War 1; they are populated by such characters as the Faulknerian archetypes Flem Snopes and Quentin Compson ("A Justice") as well as by ordinary men and women who emerge in these pages so sharply and indelibly that they dwarf the protagonists of most novels.
