More About God's Little Acre by Erskine Caldwell; Lewis Nordan
 
 
 
Overview
First published in 1933, God's Little Acre was censured by the Georgia Literary Commission, banned in Boston, attacked by the New York Society for the Suppression of Vice, and once led the all-time best-seller list, with more than ten million copies in print. Like Erskine Caldwell's groundbreaking 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.
