- THE NOBEL PRIZE WINNERS
Translated by Zaur Kiladze
As opposed to Faulkner’s other works, The Reivers is more light-hearted, dubbed the picaresque novel. Published in 1962, the bestselling novel was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. It is dedicated to his grandchildren probably because the narrator is a grandfather remembering the early days of his life.
Surprisingly, William Faulkner was relatively unknown in the USA until he received the 1949 Nobel Prize in Literature. The Modern Library rated his 1929 novel Sound and the Fury sixth on the list of the 100 Best English-language novels of the 20th century.
