Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

Set in a small Cajun community in the late 1940s, "A Lesson Before Dying" is an "enormously moving" ("Los Angeles Times") novel of one man condemned to die for a crime he did not commit and a young man who visits him in his cell. In the end, the two men forge a bond as they both come to understand the simple heroism of resisting--and defying--the expected. Winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award for Fiction.


Review:

"Like Joyce in his early stories, Gaines is writing here about moments of illumination and about what it means to be human...a strongly felt and--in the best sense--ambiguous novel."

Francine Prose, Newsday (Long Island, N.Y.)

Review:

"This is a painful story told with spare eloquence, and the resonance it creates long after one's reading gives it a classic dimension."

William Styron, Salon, 10/25/1999
