The Reivers

William Faulkner

Faulkner's final novel is a tale of three Mississippi travellers. Ned, Boon and young Lucius travel to Memphis in a stolen car to find love and fortune. Once there, Ned trades in the car for a racehorse, Lucius comes of age, and Boon sets about trying to win the heart of a prostitute named 'Miss Corrie'.


  • "This is in some ways an implacably sunny book, but any temptations Faulkner may have felt toward nostalgia are tempered by the clear eye through which he always viewed the world...written in prose at once distinctly Faulknerian yet entirely accessible...a lovely book, funny and touching and Faulkner to the core"

    Washington Post

  • "One of his greatest novels"
