I loved this book. Nothing like I have read before. It is a quick read, but makes you sit back and think.

Set during the depression, it is the story of the Lesters, a family of white sharecroppers so destitute that most of their creditors have given up on them. Debased by poverty to an elemental state of ignorance and selfishness, the Lesters are preoccupied by their hunger, sexual longings, and fear.

Caldwell's tale of destitute sharecroppers in 1920s Georgia juxtaposes the ignorance of the characters with black humor. Pretty grim, but fortunately it's a quick read.
