He did not receive any real popular success until Sanctuary in 1931. In the thirties he came to be known for the melodramatic violence in his writing and for exposing the tragic aspects of southern history.
His career culminated with a Pulitzer Prize for A Fable. Other works include Soldier's Pay, Mosquitoes, The Sound and the Fury, Light in August, The Mansion and The Reivers.
