From the back:

Nobody’s Hometown
In this pungent Erskine Caldwell novel about a collapsed boom town, penniless Southerners in a squatters’ slum fill their jobless days with casual ribaldry and haphazard lovemaking. The story of a shiftless migrant’s rowdy mixups with pretty social workers, his worries over his wild daughters, and his stubborn loyalty to his squal-id neighborhood, Tragic Ground blends the earthy humor and pathos that have made Cald-well’s books sell over 35,000,000 copies.
