Joe Christmas does not know whether he is black or white.

An allegorical story of World War I set in the trenches in France and dealing ostensibly with a mutiny in a French regiment. This novel won both the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book award in 1955. An allegorical story of World War I, set in the trenches in France and dealing ostensibly with a mutiny in a French regiment, it was originally considered a sharp departure for Faulkner. Recently it has come to be recognized as one of his major works and an essential part of the Faulkner oeuvre. Faulkner himself fought in the war, and his descriptions of it ""rise to Magnificence"," according to The New York Times, and include, in Malcolm Cowley's words, ""some of the most powerful scenes he ever conceived"."

New Orleans sketches by William Faulkner( Book )

73 editions published between 1953 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 2,405 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
