Frequently called, "the South's literary bad boy," Caldwell was one of America's most banned and censored writers, as well as having been one of its most financially successful. While many of his novels examine the seamier side of life in the American South, Tobacco Road and God's Little Acre being his best known, his full range of writings has only recently been recognized. His book, Georgia Boy, stands with Faulkner's last work as one of the finest novels of boyhood in American literature.
