The Rory Gilmore Book Club: 20 Of The Gilmore Girls Character’s Most Beloved Books
The Sound and the Fury by William Faulkner
Rory referenced at least three William Faulkner classics in her high school valedictorian speech, marking them as the novels that most shaped her into the Ivy League student she had become. Sound and the Fury also appeared as one of Rory’s bus books on season two, episode seven. Naturally, Rory needed both a biography, a novel, and a collection of short stories for her twenty-minute ride into the city, just in case she wasn’t feeling one that day.
