As "The Trail" has grown over time, Ernest J. Gaines has become one of my favorite authors. Although I had seen the made for television movie, "The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman," I had not read the novel. Because of another group member's recommendation, began to read the works of Ernest Gaines and discovered what I had been missing. We have now read several of his novels. I hope y'all won't mind my offering up his second novel, Of Love and Dust, published in 1967, as my Moderator's Choice for September, 2018.

It's appropriate to call Gaines, Professor Gaines. He serves as writer in residence at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette there. Visit the University's guide to the Ernest Gaines Center, especially regarding materials concerning Of Love and Dust. https://louisiana.libguides.com/ernes... .

I just got started, read a few pages last night. It promises to be vintage Gaines, which is just fine by me.

I can see it on my laptop. Maybe your iPad is defective. If you send it to me I'll recycle it for you. ;>)

Two Initial threads have been created for this book so I am going to close this one and refer any future comments to the other.
