Abstract:

Homer's place is a novel of Oklahoma during the Great Depression. It's a story of a town's determined people who stayed, who struggled with each other, who outlasted the Depression and the howling dust and who then went to war. It's raw life during trying times. The story focuses on Tom Cable and his father, Homer, possessed by the memory of a car wreck that took the life of his lovely young wife. His relationship with Tom varies from exceptionally warm to demonic. Homer, who owns the local picture show, is the only man in this Bull Durham, cowboy town of Winelda to sport a cigarette holder and occasionally wear pearl-gray spats. During the annual 4th of July rodeo, Homer, replete with necktie, new Florsheim brogues and a double-breasted suit, surprises the whole town by riding a bronc.
