Astute observation, and almost literally true in the case of "A Rose for Emily".

Another Faulkner I recommend as a possible initial read is The Wild Palms. It's two alternating but separate stories, set in his familiar Mississippi milieu, but without interrelation with any of the other Mississippi stories. And a deceptively strong book.
