Publisher's Summary

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 home to his family after an absence of 10 years, he discovers that his bonds to them have been irreparably rent by his absence. In the midst of his alienation, he falls in love with Catherine Carmier, setting the stage for conflicts and confrontations which are complex, tortuous, and universal in their implications.


What the Critics Say

“[Gaines’s] best writing is marked by what Ralph Ellison, describing the blues, called near-tragic, near-comic lyricism.” (Newsweek)
