Chapter 1. GRANDFATHER SAID: This is the kind of a man Boon Hogganbeck was.

Winner of the National Book Award . Forty-two stories make up this magisterial collection by the writer who stands at the pinnacle of modern American fiction. One of Faulkner's comic masterpieces, The Reivers is a picaresque that tells of three unlikely car thieves from rural Mississippi. Eleven-year-old Lucius Priest is persuaded by Boon Hogganbeck, one of his family's retainers, to steal his grandfather's car and make a trip to Memphis.
The Reivers is one of those works. Absolom! as to this harum-scarum coming of age adventure of the boy Lucius in The Reivers. It's enough of a challenge for the non-professional reader. If you decide you want to work at your reading you can move on to the more obscure and darker books. The characters in this book are blessed to live in a fictional world where their lives are not overwhelmed by the crushing weight of America's original sin.
