Reivers (Hardcover)

Reivers By William Faulkner Cover Image
Special Order


The Reivers is a picaresque about three improbable automobile thieves from rural Mississippi, and it is one of Faulkner's humorous classics. Boon Hogganbeck, one of his family's retainers, persuades eleven-year-old Lucius Priest to take his grandfather's automobile and go to Memphis. Ned McCaslin, the Priests' black coachman, stows away, and the three of them embark on a heroic quest for which they are entirely unprepared, culminating at Miss Reba's bordello in Memphis. A series of bizarre events occurs, involving horse smugglers, trainmen, sheriff's deputies, and incarceration.
