Editorial Reviews

About the Author

George Washington Cable (October 12, 1844 – January 31, 1925) was an American novelist notable for the realism of his portrayals of Creole life in his native New Orleans, Louisiana. He has been called "the most important southern artist working in the late 19th century, as well as the first modern southern writer." In his treatment of racism, mixed-race families and miscegenation, his fiction has been thought to anticipate that of William Faulkner. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
While masterpiece may be stretching it, Cable's soup opera plot, set against the exotic, tension-filled Creole landscape of slave era New Orleans is a solid, juicy read.
