God's Little Acre by Erskine Caldwell

Book Description

Like "Tobacco Road," this novel chronicles the final decline of a poor white family in rural Georgia. Exhorted by their patriarch Ty Ty, the Waldens ruin their land by digging it up in search of gold. Complex sexual entanglements and betrayals lead to a murder within the family that completes its dissolution. Juxtaposed against the Waldens' obsessive search is the story of Ty Ty's son-in-law, a cotton mill worker in a nearby town who is killed during a strike.First published in 1933, "God's Little Acre" was censured by the Georgia Literary Commission, banned in Boston, and once led the all-time best-seller list, with more than ten million copies in print.

Call it Experience by Erskine Caldwell Call it Experience, Paperback (May 1996)

This memoir presents a self-portrait of Esrkine Caldwell's first 30 years as a writer, with special emphasis on his long and hard apprenticeship before he emerged as one of the most widely read and controversial writers of his time.

Sacriledge of Alan Kent by Erskine Caldwell Sacriledge of Alan Kent, Hardback (November 1995)
