When Eskine Caldwell died in 1987, his place in the history of popular culture was already assured. The bare-woods house outside the small town of Moreland, Georgia where Caldwell was born in 1903, serves as the subject of Rob McDonald’s book. “Walking around the house, looking at the shelves of Caldwell’s books, the cases of memorabilia, I tried to forget about the celebrity. I found myself reflecting on how surely place shapes identity, how it inspires a worldview – how memory and imagination begin before we know it.”
