"God's Little Acre" is a 1933 novel by Erskine Caldwell, which was made into a film of the same name in 1958.

The novel was so controversial that a literary board in New York attempted to censor it, leading to the author's arrest and trial for obscenity. Exonerated after a jury trial, the author counter-sued the literary society for false arrest and malicious prosecution.

It is laced throughout with racy innuendo, calling into question the issue of marital fidelity.
