In the wake of Tobacco Road and God's Little Acre, as Caldwell's popularity grew, he became more successful at selling short fiction to popular magazines of the day. Capitalizing on that popularity, Viking collected in this volume twenty short stories, ranging in setting from North to South and "mostly concerned with the sexual impulses of the characters." (Coan) It was published to "overwhelmingly positive reviews" (Literary Encyclopedia), and according to Flora and Bain, "Although all of his [Caldwell's] story collections contain interesting pieces, nowhere does he surpass the achievement of . . . We Are the Living . . . " (Flora and Bain) N. B.
