"Sanctuary, published 9 February 1931, is the sixth in order of publication of Faulkner's nineteen novels, and his fourth about Jefferson, Yoknapatawpha County, Mississippi . . . Arguably his most pessimistic novel, and perhaps his most cynical as well, its sensational subject matter bootlegging, rape, murder, sex, prostitution, two murder trials, a lynching, and an execution made it Faulkner's first best seller, and, in literary circles at least, made him famous, if not infamous."
