Thirty years old and recently divorced, Liddell comes back to her home state--with her young son--determined to survive, during the depths of the Depression. Liddell narrates the obstacles she faces as a single mother in the 1930s Deep South with self-deprecating humor and a confessional tone that reveal both her intelligence and her unapologetic ambitions.
PortraitViola Goode Liddell was born in Wilcox County, Alabama, in 1901, and died there in 1998. She wrote short stories for a number of periodicals, including the Georgia Review and the Saturday Evening Post, and is the author of With a Southern Accent.
