He wrote a very "interesting" (I guess is the word) novel called Sound and the Fury in the 1920s. The novel is about three brothers from a declining southern family in Mississippi and their perspective on events surrounding their wonderful, yet tragic, sister. What is unique about the story is that it is written in a stream of consciousness with no straight narrative, sort of the way we ourselves have abstract thoughts and do not actually live in a narrative ourselves. This makes it one of the most realistic novels ever written, though the technique never caught on. The novel is highly praised by American literary scholars, though I think most people today would hate it. I enjoyed it the way I might enjoy a poem that describes action, themes, and a plot of sorts. But the book makes the reader work, which is annoying.
