Erskine Caldwell is the author of masterful stories from the life of white and African American people in the Southern states of America. His stories captivate the reader with their mixture of tragic-comic and mystery-like narrative. Caldwell's highly ethical concepts and his unique way of loving yet ruthless portrayal of humans elevate his stories far above the level of simply entertaining "bestsellers."
