Just came across this, so sorry for the lateness. Faulkner's "Absalom, Absalom!" is the right choice as a postmodern novel. "The Sound and Fury" is an exemplar of the modernist novel, a genre that Faulkner works and moves beyond in "A,A!" What I love about Faulkner is that he is one of the few American authors who was successful in both the modernist and postmodernist idioms.
