A Gathering of Old Men
by Ernest J. Gaines
When a brutal Cajun farmer is killed on a Louisiana plantation, a white woman and 18 elderly black men each claim responsibility. The sheriff believes he knows who did it, though plenty of people had motives. Meanwhile, the dead man’s father debates whether to form a lynch mob while his college student son tries to convince him “the old days are over.” This is a fascinating story of class and racial tension, and the decision to take a stand.
