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.
