By the author of A Gathering of Old Men and The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman, this is a compelling love story set in a deceptively bucolic Louisiana countryside, where African Americans, Cajuns, and whites maintain an uneasy coexistence. "(Gaines') best writing is marked by what Ralph Ellison, describing the blues, called 'near-tragic, near-comic lyricism".--Newsweek.
