Return to the deep South and the Depression with Erskine Caldwell. This 1932 tale of poverty is characterized by black humor, repetitive complaints and unusual family relations. Mark Hammer narrates in a clear voice. With their thin, whining Southern accents, all the characters sound the same, making it difficult to determine who's speaking. The narrative is presented in a flatter accent, which is separate from the dialogue. The tale is difficult to follow for listeners unfamiliar with the story.
