CHARACTERS ☆ Gully Dirt No part of America scars its children as does the southIn this incandescent memoir Robert Coram tells how a rough edged boy escaped from a nowhere little town in rural southwest Georgia and became an accomplished writerWith a flawless ear and an unblinking eye Coram escorts us across a uniue landscape capturing the nuances of life in a small southern town during the 1950s not by writing of the romantic south but rather of a south that can b. Robert Coram s memoir Gully Dirt is a witty yet deeply introspective coming of age story of a young kid from rural Georgia trying to climb his way out of family strife and a culture of racism Coram grew up in Southwest Georgia in the 1950s among peanut farmers folks with no telephones or toilets Set against this poor gritty racist backdrop Coram writes with elouence and nuance It s a fascinating and easy read despite the weight of some of the subject matterThe oldest of four Robert seems despised by his ex Army father who seems to take pleasure in substituting anger and mean spiritedness when his son deserves care and attention His mother tries as hard as she can to keep the two from fighting but it s an impossible taskRobert never really fits in He s not too into religion from the beginning preachers and religion frightened me and not very good at sports But he does maintain a merry band of friends and gets into some impressive sexual situations with girls for a teenage kid in the 50s But Robert seems obsessed with a desire to flee the place he was born and raised Some of this is due to his fanatical reading habits In books like many of us who find ourselves in strange and uncertain situations Robert finds peace and inspiration In reading Poe I discovered emotions and feelings I did not know I possessed That summer I learned that the contents of a book could resonate in the heart and linger in the memory As he grows up he begins to uestion the assumptions of his racist father and the culture in which he grew up Much of this is brought on when he reads a book by a Georgia author named Frank Yerby Mr Yerby said that men in the South were too enad by the mystical brotherhood of whiteness to comprehend democracy and that the rise of black men did not mean the fall of whiteness Coram continues I was deeply disturbed The book had forced me to consider whether what I thought I knew about black people could be wrong If there were in reality black people such as those Frank Yerby described they were clearly superior to many of the white people I knew The scope of such a heretical idea was at the time simply too much for me to assimilate He devours all of Yerby s books which further instills in him the power of the written word a book is than pages covered with printed words A book is a package of wonder a container of bliss a vale of emotion an unexploded bomb An even bigger shock comes when he learns that the author is black I was obsessed there is no other word for it with the discovery that Frank Yerby the greatest writer that God ever put on earth was from Georgia And he was black Coram continues The books of Frank Yerby were a yeasty concoction that would ferment for years and make me uestion the things I had been taught about black people about the South about my family about the very roots of my existence But institutional racism wasn t built overnight and a kid raised in this culture doesn t uickly extricate himself from it Coram writes The racism that was in the marrow of my bones would like a virulent poison take years to eradicate The title of the book is a little misleading Coram does raise a hog and he does escape the South at least in spirit but there is no exposing of the Klan Young Coram and his buddies do sneak into an old building in the woods that turns out to be a Klan hideout complete with hoods and white capes They mess around a bit but nothing much comes of it I was expecting the Klan to feature a bit prominently in this book and hoping Coram would somehow stick it to the Klan but none of that happens Still this is a wonderfully written memoir that seems to speak truly and honestly about this specific time and place
