About the book:

Faulkner's great comic novel moves on the wheels of breathless suspense. Lucius Priest, Boon Hogganbeck, and Ned McCaslin "borrow" Lucius grandfather's automobile at the beginning of a hilarious journey that pales in comparison to what awaits the reivers (plunderers or freebooters) in Memphis. Ned trades the auto for a most dubious racehorse. How the reivers grapple with the crisis is the mainspring of the story which leads from a brothel to a brush with the law to the most bizarre horse racing in fact or fiction! The wild humor and the frenetic action will not, however, obscure to the listener that "The Reivers," like all of Faulkner's work, is about moving and tender human relationships and moral insights into human conduct.
