9780099585817: The Reivers (Vintage Classics)

With the Reivers, Faulkner offers the reader high comedy in a tale of three Mississippi travellers in Memphis. Set in the first years of this century, the book explores the contradictions of a society at the crossroads of the modern age, traditional but still vigourous, combining old-world politeness with brutality.

Review:

"One of his greatest novels" ( Independent)

"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)
