    Paperback Ä Catherine Carmier MOBI º catherine kindle, carmier kindle, Catherine Carmier MOBII am always drawn to stories that feature a return to a family or community after a prolonged absence and Gaines presents a poignant one in Catherine Carmier Jackson returns not as a fresh faced enthusiastic young man ready to take up the challenge and duty to give to his community what he has received in California but is instead disillusioned and frustrated with the unfairness and cruelties that seem to be true no matter where he goes because of who and what he is For Jackson leaving his small segregated community in Louisiana was an opportunity to taste freedom through education and being surrounded by people who are open minded Unfortunately Jackson finds a different reality than what he dreamed I was immersed in the story almost immediately I felt

    Paperback Ä Catherine Carmier MOBI º catherine kindle, carmier kindle, Catherine Carmier MOBII am on a Gaines binge this week having read 3 of his books in the last 6 days This was his first novel and I enjoyed it By the last 5th you know a trainwreck is about to happen just that I was unable to figure out who would be the victim One thing that I love about his books are the lack of total predictabilityI have a stack of his books to go

    Paperback Ä Catherine Carmier MOBI º catherine kindle, carmier kindle, Catherine Carmier MOBICatherine Carmier was a good book but not asgood as Love and Dust Of course that is mypersonal opinionIt dealt with racial colorromance and violenceThe thing that put me off was the characters'communication with their eyes This occurredtoo many times to seem possibleTo say that Catherine's family was dysfunctionalwas putting it mildly She was abnormallyattached to her father See what you thinkabout thisIt was a sort of romance novel I guess

    Paperback Ä Catherine Carmier MOBI º catherine kindle, carmier kindle, Catherine Carmier MOBII read this book originally published in 1964 for a great LEH funded program at our public library exploring creole identity and experience It was brilliant While short ie readable in an evening the book is deceptively complicated That is you read it in a few hours but spend several untangling the web of what you've just read It tackles race class gender parentchild relationships esp those of parent with child of opposite sex urbanrural dichotomies as well as the somewhat predictable opposition of faith vs intellectualism in southern life What's so terribly clever is that many of the seemingly irredeemable characters eg Raoul are actually tragic heroes with Achilles heel and all Still others including the compelling Madame Bayonne are knowledgeable older women with some sem

    Paperback Ä Catherine Carmier MOBI º catherine kindle, carmier kindle, Catherine Carmier MOBINormally I love Gaines books A Lesson Before Dying was one of the best books I have ever read Catherine Carmier actually explores much of the same theme young black educated man comes home but doesn't intend to stay as the later book but it is clear that the author isn't as mature in his writing The concepts are there but not the ability to make us love the characters and care about their problems It took me a long time to read this very short book because I could put it down and did many many times Even so it is worth a read if you are interested in the topic of the life of black Americans in the south
