A Fable is a novel written in 1954 by the American author William Faulkner, which won him both the Pulitzer prize and the National Book Award in 1955. Despite these recognitions, however, the novel received mixed critical reviews and a reputation as one of Faulkner's lesser works . The author, on the other hand, spent over a decade and tremendous effort on A Fable, and considered it his masterpiece when it was completed. Historically, it can be seen as a precursor to Catch 22.
