Published in 1950, the year after William Faulkner won the 1949 Nobel Prize for Literature, Notes on a Horsethief follows the story of a pair of men, one a white Englishman and the other a Black American, who abscond with a famous racehorse. The authorities pursue the men before ending in a small Missouri town where the men, the horse, and the wider community face a reckoning with legal, cultural, and racial implications.
