Bloodline: Five Stories

Bloodline: Five Stories

Ernest J. Gaines

In those 5 tales, Gaines returns to the cane fields, sharecroppers' shacks, and decaying plantation homes of Louisiana, the terrain of his nice novels A amassing of outdated Men and A Lesson ahead of Dying. As rendered by means of Gaines, this state turns into as everyday, and as haunted by means of cruelty, discomfort, and braveness, as Ralph Ellison's Harlem or Faulkner's Yoknapatawpha County.
