He placed many of his short stories and novels in the fictional Yoknapatwpha County, based on his own experiences in Lafayette and Holly Springs/Marshall Counties. In 1949, Faulkner received the Nobel Prize for Literature and received the Pulitzer Prize twice (1955 and 1963), for his novels A Fable and The Reivers. In addition to these works, Faulkner is best known for his novels The Sound and the Fury, As I Lay Dying, Light in August, and Absalom, Absalom!
