A Book to Read and Love: House of Earth: A Novel - Woody Guthrie

 


A short summary of House of Earth:

Dreams of dirt houses during the Dustbowl.

My favorite quote from the book:

"Why has it just got to be dog-eat-dog? Why can't we live so as to let other people live?"


Questions to ponder while reading House of Earth:

How do you feel about sharecropping?

Would you be willing to build your own house?

My thoughts about the book:

A historical treasure.

A long-lost Woody Guthrie novel brought to life by Douglas Brinkley & Johnny Depp.

Rich in depression-era concepts and vernacular.

*Note* There is sexually explicit content, that while contextual, is detailed and graphic. This may not be the best book for the young or faint of heart.
