Southern writers are entitled to creating works of fiction without being judged as racist or insensitive. In "Tobacco Road" Caldwell spins a classic fable out of a sackful of turnips.
This book walks you down a country road for a few hours like a good friend. Enjoy it.

This book is pure Socialist trash. Take a bunch of dumb people from the South, watch them make one dumb decision after another and the solution to such foolishness is some kind of "outside intervention." We all know what that means.

Georgia author Erskine Caldwell's reputation has not really survived and he's rarely mentioned in the same breathe as fellow Southern writers like Faulkner, O'Connor, McCulers, etc. Although I don't think it's meant to be comic, this novel about poor whites in rural Georgia plays as comedy. Also, I don't know if Caldwell was racist or just his characters were. Turned into a film a few years later. For a more serious look at a similar subject, see "Let Us Now Praise Famous Men."
