Talk about Trouble: A New Deal Portrait of Virginians in the Great Depression by Martin-Perdue, Nancy J.

Things aint now like they used to be nohow, a Virginia native told a WPA worker in the 1930s. Indeed, a central theme unifying the hundreds of life histories recorded by Virginia Writers Project fieldworkers between 1938 and 1941 is that the narrators all bear witness to the vast socioeconomic and cultural changes brought about by the Great Depression and the New Deals responses to it. These never-published VWP narrative interviews, however, have remained largely unknown and unavailable to readers until now.Talk about Troublepresents 61 Writers Project life histories that depict Virginia men and women, both blacks and whites, and offer a cross-section of ages, occupations, experiences, and cultural and class backgrounds. Headnotes set the context for each life history and introduce people and themes that link individual events and experiences. One hundred sixty photographs, most taken in the state by Farm Security Administration or Virginia WPA photographers, add graphic texture and backdrop to the stories and lives recounted.
