Bloodline by Ernest Gaines

Book Description

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.STORIES INCLUDE: A Long Day in NovemberThe Sky Is GrayThree MenBloodlineJust Like a Tree
