9, 1931, by Jonathan Cape and Harrison Smith.
Sanctuary is Faulkners most sensational novel, and
because of its lurid subject matter also his most notorious, particularly
to his fellow Oxford residents, many of
whom felt Faulkner was painting a distorted picture of their fair
city. It tells the story of Temple
Drake, an Alabama debutante who takes a wrong turn and winds
up in the grip of a sinister bootlegger named Popeye
at the Old Frenchmans
