    1 thought on “Trouble in July ”

    1. Good lord, this was dark. Imagine To Kill a Mockingbird without Atticus Finch--in fact, without a single character with a lick of moral conscience--and you have Trouble in July. It's a sadly, disturbingly accurate look at racial politics in the South. It was published in 1940, but the attitudes in this novel have not changed too much in the past 76 years. I'm from South Carolina, and I was disturbed by how realistic the scenario in this book felt. This was an excellent read and one that deserves [...]

    2. Like the other Erskine Caldwell books that i've read, this is an extremely disquieting tale of racism and evil mixed with a quirky off-the-cuff sense of humor. The first time i read Caldwell (Tobacco Road) i was surprised by how funny he could be with such ugly topic matter. Sure, rural southern culture has a reputation for fostering ignorance and stupidity, but could it really reach a level of inhumanity this low? Of course, Trouble in July was written in the 40's, and that was obviously a much [...]

    3. This is a fine book - one of those that I read many years ago but that has stayed with me. It's good to see that it's back in print; also that it's now available in e-book form. The subject matter of Trouble in July - a lynching - means it's not always an easy read, but it is so well put together, and so atmospheric, that you are drawn into the narrative from the beginning. The humid air of a southern summer seems to seep right off the pages.A key to this book - and one of the other reviewers to [...]

    4. One of my favorite Caldwell books, not because it is a 'nice ' story, it is anything but, but it is realistic, as history has proven of the lives poor black folks down South endured since forever.It is about a lynching and I will say no more so as not to spoil it for anybody who wishes to read it. I love most of his books, and all the ones that deal with the South, along with Place called Estherville and this one is incredibly moving. I highly recommend this book. A+++++++

    5. This, like "A Place Called Estherville," deals with the racism and violence in the South during the Depression. It is very different from "Tobacco Road" and "God's Little Acre" as there is very little humor--that is unless you consider the antics of a county sheriff trying to hide out so he won't be called upon to stop some good ole boys having a bit of fun and thus alienate some voters come the next election. Yes. That's right. That "bit of fun" is a lynching. This book is not just unsettling, [...]

    6. A novel of the economics and sociology of racism What fascinates is that whether or not young black Sonny raped a white girl is irrelevant. Frustrated poor-whites want a pretext to kill something. Wealthy land owners know if Sonny is lynched it will start a wave of such hysteria and blacks will flee the county, leaving them without pickers when the cotton matures in August (hence the title). The Sheriff, who lives rent free above the jail house with his wife, and doesn't want to lose his job in [...]

    7. Siamo nell'epoca della Depressione, e la questione razziale nel Deep South Statunitense non è ancora risolta. Un'America abbrutita dalla povertà e dall'ignoranza che, a seguito di un presunto stupro di un ragazzino di colore nei confronti di una ragazza bianca, scaglia la propria rabbia, indipendentemente da ogni criterio di accertamento della colpa, sul più debole, sul popolo nero, fino ad allora tollerato solo perché indispensabile al lavoro più duro.Rischierebbe di essere la solita vecch [...]

    8. I really enjoyed this story. As always, the author creates interesting characters and clever dialogue that not only develops the atmosphere, but also gives one a sense of the characters themselves. I don't pay much mind to opinions of political ilk regarding the story. The story is a drama and oft times drama is ugly. If you enjoy Americana, this book is for you. Cheers!

    9. One might be forgiven for suggesting that Erskine Caldwell had an obsession with the South—though not with a sonorous-sounding, gracious-living Savannah or Charleston South. Rather, with the poorest and dirtiest kind of South imaginable.The white characters of Caldwell’s South are nothing less than narrow-minded, evil-mongering scoundrels; the black characters, virtually all like frightened children just waiting for the next blow to fall out of God-knows-where and from God-knows-whom.And yet [...]

    10. Con l’uscita di Fermento di luglio si conclude la ripubblicazione del Ciclo del Sud di Erskine Caldwell, iniziato con La via del tabacco e Piccolo campo.Estate, Georgia, estremo Sud degli Stati Uniti. Tra i campi di cotone oppressi dall’afa, l’iroso abbaiare dei cani, i cespugli gialli di polvere ai bordi delle strade, si svolge una drammatica caccia all’uomo. Katy Barlow, bianca, accusa ingiustamente Sonny Clark, nero, di stupro. Da una parte il negro braccato, con gli occhi sbarrati da [...]

    11. In un’afosa notte di luglio, lo sceriffo di Andrewjones (Georgia) viene bruscamente svegliato dai suoi vice; per Jeff McCurtain, lo sceriffo, è l’inizio di una tormentata vicenda in cui la sorte di Sonny Clark, ingiustamente accusato di aver stuprato una ragazza bianca, è uno dei fattori meno rilevanti. Ci sono le elezioni e Jeff è consapevole della difficoltà di ottenere i voti necessari alla sua rielezione; d’altro canto non vuole tornare, dopo molti anni, a lavorare la terra. Il suo [...]

    12. The sheriff is not a bad man just concerned with playing politics to keep his job. He doesn't want to do anything until he knows which way the political wind is blowing. Very sad, poor innocent Sonny. The black people really did have it rough pre-civil rights. I shudder to think how many innocent people were lynched over the years, falsely accused, or being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Poor white trash feeling the need to be superior to someone has been the cause of many terrible things [...]

    13. Extremely depressing account of a lynching of a black sharecropper accused of raping a white woman. It all takes place over the course of one day, showing how everyone contributes to the lynching. It was well written, just very frustrating to read. So although I think it's a good book, I just can't say I "liked" it, or that I recommend it.

    14. Trouble in July by Erskine Caldwell (New American Library 1940) (Fiction). This short volume is the story of a lynching in rural Georgia in the 1930's when a black man was wrongly accused of the rape of the fifteen-year-old daughter of a white sharecropper. It is close to racial pornography; it must have been incendiary when published. My rating: 7/10, finished 7/11/16.

    15. A good story - strange politics in a small county seat in the rural south. The ending was expected, but there were surprising aspects. I would recommend it if you enjoyed God's Little Acre.

    16. A brief but powerful story of racial violence and prejudice in the Depression era South. It involves the all too familiar tale of a white woman who falsely accuses a black man of rape and the white mob then takes over and seeks their own brand of justice. Though written in 1940, it is still remarkably fresh and worth reading today.

    17. Leggere ha dei punti in comune con l'amore. Ed una delle prime regole - se non la prima - di una relazione amorosa è non pensare agli ex. Se ciò capita, è evidente che qualcosa non va. È lo stesso che mi è accaduto leggendo "Fermento di luglio": leggevo Caldwell, ma pensavo a Steinbeck. Perché una storia così cruda, così vibrante, così attuale, merita qualcuno dalle capacità espressive molto superiori a quelle di Caldwell. Qualcuno che non descriva pedissequamente gli stati d'animo dei [...]

    18. Trouble in July has a "Too Kill A Mockingbird" vibe at first. A black man is accused of raping a white woman. However, there is no Atticus Finch to save the day. In fact, the end is more true to life.
