Meet the Author


George Washington Cable (1844-1925), after fighting for the Confederacy in the Civil War, wrote about his native Louisiana in realist novels. His anti-racist and pro-civil rights attitudes eventually brought him to the north. Novels such as Old Creole Days, The Grandissimes, and Madame Delphine are often cited as forerunners of the work of William Faulkner.
