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.

About the Author:

C.J. Stevens is a native of Maine. His poems, stories, articles, Dutch and Flemish translations have appeared in over 500 publications and sixty anthologies and textbooks. This is his third biography and fourteenth book.
