“A deft hand has woven this narrative. . . . This book rings true.”—The New York Times Faulkner’s first novel, Soldiers’ Pay (1926), is among the most memorable works to emerge from the First World War. Through the story of a wounded veteran’s homecoming, it examines the impact of soldiers’ return from war on the people—particularly the women—who were left behind.

Having made his mark in Frenchman’s Bend, ambitious Flem Snopes sets his sights on the town of Jefferson. Rising up through the ranks of Jefferson’s bank, Flem uses his power to influence life in the town and control his unruly family. With the same memorable characters from The Hamlet, The Town is the second book in William Faulkner’s Snopes trilogy and continues his commentary on post-war economic troubles in the American South. Published 17 years after The Hamlet, The Town marked Faulkner’s return to Snopes’s story, which he completed with The Mansion. While a self-contained novel, The Hamlet’s meaning and social commentary is deepened when read in conjunction with the other Snopes books.

The First World War is remembered largely for the immense sacrifice in life and limb of Canadian soldiers. In Fight or Pay, Desmond Morton turns his eye to the stories of those who paid in lieu of fighting - the wives, mothers, and families left behind when soldiers went to war. A pan-Canadian story, Fight or Pay brings to light the lives of thousands of valiant women whose sacrifices have been overlooked in previous histories. It is an incisive and honest look at the beginnings of a social welfare system that Canadians have come to think of as intrinsic to citizenship.
