I wonder if half-way through his writing of the book is when James Jones read "God's Little Acre," in which the old man used that expression constantly?

******** I don't know the answer, so I guess I'll ask another question. Is GOD'S LITTLE ACRE a good read after TOBACCO ROAD, or is it just more of the same?

Thanks, miker
