Ernest J. Gaines
Award-winning classic novel of prejudice, community and what it means to be a man in the American South. New edition with an introduction by Attica Locke.
Gaines has created a powerful and loving portrait of a small, mainly cane-cutting community ... A transcendent and heartfelt novel of redemption
This is a fine and decent book that lives in the memory for its elegance and sadness ... like the best country songs, straight and true, unafraid of sentiment and written for the people it depicts, not simply about them
A narrative of the deep pain of the south... Gaines writes from the blues and his novel has redemptive power
Gaines has written a novel that is not only never maudlin, but approaches the spare beauty of a classic
This majestic, moving novel is an instant classic, a book that will be read, discussed and taught beyond the rest of our lives.
