Editorial Reviews


An extensively and thoroughly researched biography. This is a well-written story of Erskine Caldwell's tumultuous life. JOHN N. COLE -- Lewiston, Maine, Sunday Journal, October 8, 2000

From the Publisher

Erskine Caldwell had little control over the things he was writing and never allowed himself the luxury of interfering when a character in a story misbehaved. He,the author,had no right to shackle this offender with virtues. Blessed with a colloquial authenticity, Caldwell gave his fictional characters a rugged durability by keeping the diction simple. Here was a writer who possessed the true burlesque touch: vulgarity mixed with rural humor and folklore, neurotic situations passed off as ordinary occurrences, and tragedy which began with laughter and ended without remorse.
