William Faulkner was born September 25, 1897 in Albany, Miss. A high school and college dropout, Faulkner brought the South to life through fictitious Yoknapatawpha County.
By 1944, he had published 17 books, but all were out of print.
His work eventually found success in Europe, especially in France.
This international success lead to Faulkner's Nobel Peace Prize in 1949.
