First complete collection of Faulkner's short fictional vignettes of life in New Orleans, originally published in 1925 in the Times-Picayune newspaper and in The Double Dealer, a New Orleans little magazine, and thus preceding his work as a novelist. “Elements of Faulkner's later techniques are in these early pieces, which also show at times his mature power, control, and confidence” -- from the introduction by Carvel Collins.
