Fodor's Review

The young novelist William Faulkner lived and wrote his first book, Soldiers' Pay, here in the 1920s. He later returned to his native Oxford, Mississippi, where his explorations of Southern consciousness earned him the Nobel Prize for literature. The house is not open for tours, but the ground-floor apartment Faulkner inhabited is now a bookstore, Faulkner House Books, which specializes in local and Southern writers. The house is also home to the Pirate's Alley Faulkner Society literary group, which sponsors the annual Words & Music literary festival.
