"Flem's relentless drive toward wealth and control plays itself out in The Mansion (1959), in which a wronged relative, the downtrodden sharecropper Mink Snopes, succeeds in avenging himself and bringing down the corrupt Snopes dynasty."--BOOK JACKET. "His last novel, The Reivers: A Reminiscence (1962), is distinctly mellower and more elegiac than his earlier work. A picaresque adventure set early in the twentieth century and involving a Memphis brothel, a racehorse, and a stolen automobile, it evokes the world of childhood with a final burst of comic energy."--BOOK JACKET.

Review: Novels, 1930-1935

User Review  - Charles Fresquez - Goodreads

Now that I've read all this Faulkner, for some reason I now have a greater appreciation for Herman Melville as well. My favorite novel of these four is Light in August. I would highly recommend it. Read full review
