4) The fathers
G.P. Putnam's Sons
The Fathers is the powerful novel by the poet and critic recognized as one of the great men of letters of our time, Alan Tate. Old Major Buchan of Pleasant Hill, Fairfax County, Virginia, lived by a gentlemen's agreement to ignore what was base or rude, to live a life which was gentle and comfortable because it was formal. Into this life George Posey came dashing, to flout the conventions of southern society.
