Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Like 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.

First published in 1933, God's Little Acre was censured by the Georgia Literary Commission, banned in Boston, and once led the all-time best-seller list, with more than ten million copies in print.

Book News Annotation:

**** Reprint, in U. of Georgia Press' Brown Thrasher Books, of the classic originally published by Viking in 1933 (cited in BCL3). New (4p.) foreword by Lewis Nordan.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
