First published in 1970, “Another Part of the House” is a simple, direct, intimate story of family life in a small Texas town during the Depression.  Told by 10-year-old Larry Morrison, it reflects Larry’s uncertainty as he sees the security of his family—mother, father, and 15 year-old brother, Tad—threatened by immediate forces such as his father’s ne’er-do-well brother, Uncle Calvin, and by larger, more serious adversaries—the Depression, the drought, the dust and, most incomprehensible of all, death.  How the family deals with them while preserving its own strength and unity is the story.
