Soldier's Pay Paperback
Soldier's Pay is the first novel by American Nobel-Prize winner William Faulkner.
It was during the summer of 1925, when he was working in New Orleans, that Faulkner met Sherwood Anderson and was encouraged by him to write a novel.
Unlike his later books this post-war story of a wounded, helpless and dying officer returning home to his father and his fickle sweetheart is set in Georgia, but some of Faulkner's feeling for the South and many of his character-types are already foreshadowed.

Significantly better than I expected from the first novel.
