By the author of A Lesson Before Dying, Catherine Carmier is a compelling love story set in a deceptively bucolic Louisiana countryside, where blacks, Cajuns, and whites maintain an uneasy coexistence. When Jackson returns to Louisiana after living in San Francisco for ten years, he falls in love with Catherine Carmier, thus setting the stage for conflicts and confrontations which are complex, tortuous, and universal in their implications.



"[Gaines's] best writing is marked by what Ralph Ellison, describing the blues, called near-tragic, near-comic lyricism."--Newsweek
