    This like A Place Called Estherville deals with the racism and violence in the South during the Depression It is very different from Tobacco Road and God's Little Acre as there is very little humor that is unless you cons

    A novel of the economics and sociology of racism What fascinates is that whether or not young black Sonny raped a white girl is irrelevant Frustrated poor whites want a pretext to kill something Wealthy land owners know if Sonny is lynched it will start a wave of such hysteria and blacks will flee the county leaving them without pickers when the cotton matures in August hence the title The Sheriff who lives rent free ab

    I really enjoyed this story As always the author creates interesting characters and clever dialogue that not only develops the atmosphere but also gives one a sense of the characters themselves I don't pay much mind to opinions of p

    One might be forgiven for suggesting that Erskine Caldwell had an obsession with the South—though not with a sonorous sounding gracious living Savannah or Charleston South Rather with the poorest and dirtiest

    Not at all an enjoyable book but a remarkably compelling one The second book I've read by this author the other being TOBACCO ROAD and excepting the accused in this one have yet to encounter a sympathetic character But Caldwell is a very good writer and holds the interest throughout

Review Trouble in July

A small southern community into the single mindedness of a mob Erskine Caldwell shows the lynching of Sonny Clark through many eyes However Caldwell reserves some of his most powerful passages for the few who truly held Clark's life in. This like A Place Called Estherville deals with the racism and violence in the South during the Depression It is very different from Tobacco Road and God s Little Acre as there is very little humor that is unless you consider the antics of a county sheriff trying to hide out so he won t be called upon to stop some good ole boys having a bit of fun and thus alienate some voters come the next election Yes That s right That bit of fun is a lynching This book is not just unsettling it is frightening It is an ugly story about ugly people during an ugly time and the most frightening aspect is that those involved landowners sheriff mayor etc don t see themselves as doing anything all that wrong
