A Lesson Before Dying by Ernest J. Gaines
A Lesson Before Dying, set in a small Cajun community in the late 1940s, is about the bond forged between two men—Jefferson, convicted of murder and sentenced to die; and Grant Wiggins, a college graduate returning to his hometown to teach. Through their friendship and the wisdom they impart upon one another, they both come to understand the simple heroism of resisting—and defying—the expected. Gaines brings to this novel a rich sense of place and a deep understanding of the human psyche.
