Abstract:

The Georgia boy is twelve years old, and the household in which he is brought up includes his father, Morris Stroup, a somewhat strong-minded and itinerant character, and his mother, Martha Stroup, trying to raise her young son and cope with her husband, some aggravating goats, game cocks, and a lazy colored yard boy named Handsome Brown, who has a hand in practically everything. Mrs. Stroup raises her family with the grace of any woman who has been supporting herself and household as long as she can remember. Georgia Boy is a new sort of book from the pen of Erskine Caldwell. It is a tale of boyhood woven from memory and fancy, altogether a charming story. While the complete measure of the book might be humorous in tone, Georgia Boy is balanced by sentiment, irony, and enough of the ordinary in everyday life to be compared with such other wholly delightful books in the same field as Clarence Day's Life with Father and Ruth McKenney's My Sister Eileen.--From dust jacket.
