Read full description of the books Os Ratoneiros:Os Ratoneiros, uma das obras-primas de William Faulkner, é um romance que conta a história de três improváveis ladrões, ou ratoneiros, de carros no Mississippi rural, no início do século XX.
O jovem de onze anos Lucius Priest é persuadido por Boon Hogganbeck, um dos empregados da família, a roubar o espectacular carro do avô e fazer uma viagem até Memphis. O cocheiro negro, Ned McCaslin, junta-se-lhes clandestinamente e os três «ratoneiros» partem numa heróica odisseia para a qual não estão preparados, uma aventura que os leva do bordel de Miss Reba a uma espectacular corrida de cavalos, onde Lucius tem de levar um garanhão à vitória para reaver o Winton Flyer que Ned trocou pelo cavalo.
Read information about the authorWilliam Cuthbert Faulkner was a Nobel Prize-winning American novelist and short story writer. One of the most influential writers of the twentieth century, his reputation is based mostly on his novels, novellas, and short stories. He was also a published poet and an occasional screenwriter.
The majority of his works are based in his native state of Mississippi. Though his work was published as early as 1919, and largely during the 1920s and 1930s, Faulkner was relatively unknown until receiving the 1949 Nobel Prize in Literature, "for his powerful and artistically unique contribution to the modern American novel." Faulkner has often been cited as one of the most important writers in the history of American literature. Faulkner was influenced by the european modernism, and employed the Stream of consciousness in several of his novels.
