CONVERSATIONS WITH ERNEST GAINES
Edition: First printing, a trade paperback, issued simultaneously with hardcover.
Jackson, MI: University Press of Mississippi, (1995.). First edition - Includes interviews and conversations ranging from 1969 to 1994, and covering much of his work and ideas. Although Gaines has won many awards - including the National Book Award, the Pulitzer Prize, and the MacArthur "genius" award, and his books have been the basis of excellent films, he remains a very under-appreciated writer by the public as a whole. However, a book like this helps to put his work in perspective and to reveal the complexity and depth of his characters and ideas. A title in the Literary Conversations Series. Frontispiece, chronology. Index. 335 pp. ISBN: 0-878057838.
Condition: Fine in illustrated wrappers (a new copy)
