Bloodline: Five Stories

Bloodline: Five Stories

Ernest J. Gaines

Language: English

Pages: 256

ISBN: 067978165X

Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub

In these five stories, Gaines returns to the cane fields, sharecroppers' shacks, and decaying plantation houses of Louisiana, the terrain of his great novels A Gathering of Old Men and A Lesson Before Dying. As rendered by Gaines, this country becomes as familiar, and as haunted by cruelty, suffering, and courage, as Ralph Ellison's Harlem or Faulkner's Yoknapatawpha County.
