Caldwell was born in Texas in 1951, in a land of plains so vast they frightened her. Caldwell's mother was a clandestine lover of books; her father was a master sergeant in World War II. These personalities shaped Caldwell. Turning to books for each poignant change in her life, Caldwell eventually became what her mother could not: a writer.

"A Pulitzer Prize-winner for her work as chief book critic of the Boston Globe, Caldwell recalls a Fifties childhood in the Texas Panhandle and her escape through books and, eventually, rebellion in the Sixties." (Library Journal)
