In this candid view of the hardships and rewards of the writer's life, Erskine Caldwell recalls his first thirty years as a writer, with special emphasis on his long and hard apprenticeship before he emerged as one of the most widely read and controversial authors of his time. All the while conveying the enormous amount of drive and dedication with which he pursued his calling, Caldwell tells of his struggles to find his own voice, his travels, and his various jobs, which ranged from backbreaking manual labor to much sought-after positions in radio, film, and journalism. Including a self-interview, Call It Experience offers a wealth of insights into Caldwell's imagination and his writing habits, as well as his views on critics and reviewers, publishers, and booksellers. It is a source of information and inspiration to aspiring writers

Filmada por el gran maestro John Ford ('La legión invencible', '¡Qué verde era mi valle!'), 'La ruta del tabaco' es una película divertida y conmovedora sobre los Lester, una excéntrica familia sureña que debe emplear toda clase de artimañas para salvar sus campos de algodón antes de que el banco cumpla sus demandas y se las apropie. Además de un excelente reparto, en el que aparecen Dana Andrews y Gene Tierney, la película cuenta con un notable guión del mítico Nunnally Johnson, autor de algunas de las mejores páginas de la historia del cine, firmando obras tan significativas como 'Las uvas de la ira', dirigida por el propio John Ford, o 'Doce del patíbulo', dirigida por Robert Aldrich
