9780934601115: With All My Might: An Autobiography

In With All My Might, his definitive autobiography, Caldwell tells about his work as a cotton picker, stagehand, professional football player, and war correspondent for Life magazine during World War II.
In 1932, Erskine Caldwell's first novel, Tobacco Road, was the center of controversy. Some critics condemned the book; others considered it to be the work of a genius. Today Caldwell's fifty-plus books have sold more than 80 million copies worldwide, and his stature as a writer has been firmly established.
In With All My Might, his definitive autobiography, Caldwell tells about his work as a cotton picker, stagehand, professional football player, and war correspondent for Life magazine during World War II. He describes his four marriages (including the much-publicized divorce from photographer Margaret Bourke-White). He writes of the sacrifices he made and the rejections he suffered during the years he was struggling to have his work published.

From Library Journal:

A prolific author of both fiction and nonfiction, Caldwell has led a long life devoted to writing and traveling. The story of his determination to become a writer makes the first portion of this autobiographya significantly revised and more personal update of Call It Experience (1951)absorbing reading, but it eventually deteriorates into a catalogue of his travels, interspersed with sometimes insightful, sometimes trivial anecdotes. He sheds little light on his works, almost never discussing the content of specific books, and the style is uneven, often flat and stilted. Followers of Caldwell, however, will want to read this work for the glimpses it provides of his personal life. Robert Aken, Univ. of Kentucky Lib., Lexington

Review:

"...mesmerizing autobiography, written with the artistry that marks his works." ---Publishers Weekly
