"Mary Ellen Doyle gathers and makes audible the voices arising from all of Ernest J. Gaines's fiction to date - the indelible characters who inhabit the author's lifelong inspirational territory: the bayous, cane fields, and plantation homes of Louisiana's Pointe Coupee Parish. Beginning with the author's upbringing and influences on River Lake Plantation - amid the pecan trees and live oaks, the big house and the tenant quarters - this penetrating study offers close readings of Gaines's uncollected short fiction, the early collection Bloodline, and all of his novels, including The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman and the acclaimed A Lesson Before Dying." -- from the publisher.
