God's Little Acre: A Novel

Caldwell’s blockbuster bestseller: In the Depression-era Deep South, destitute farmer Ty Ty Walden struggles to raise a family on his own
 
Single father and poor Southern farmer Ty Ty Walden has a plan to save his farm and his family: He will tear his fields apart until he finds gold. While Ty Ty obsesses over his fool’s quest, his sons and daughters search in vain for their own dreams of instant happiness—whether from money, violence, or sex.
 
God’s Little Acre is a classic dark comedy, a satire that lampoons a broken South while holding a light to the toll that poverty takes on the hopes and dreams of the poor themselves.
 
This ebook features an illustrated biography of Erskine Caldwell including rare photos and never-before-seen documents courtesy of the Dartmouth College Library.
'“What William Faulkner implies, Erskine Caldwell records.” —Chicago Tribune “In many respects, this is an unusual book. It is original, vigorous, lusty.” —The New York Times “Caldwell writes with a full-blooded gusty vitality that makes him akin to the truly great.” —San Francisco Chronicle'
