“A deft hand has woven this narrative. . . . This book rings true.”—New York Times
Faulkner’s debut novel, Soldiers’ Pay (1926), is among the most memorable works to emerge from the First World War. Through the story of a wounded veteran’s homecoming, it examines the impact of soldiers’ return from war on the people—particularly the women—who were left behind.
