Maybe I should have recommended As I Lay Dying

I hope you enjoy Light in August
as much as I did. It's a very powerful book. In my opinion, some of its characters are among the best Faulkner ever created. Let us know how you like it.
I did my graduate thesis on Faulkner and would have suggested the same for a true sense of Faulkner. For a lighter start, you could have suggested The Reivers
, but i think as stand alones Light in August
or As I Lay Dying
are great places for new readers to start.
