I've read this book three times. It's a great read about a man who cast a long shadow in Georgia politics long after his death. It's hard to find but worth the effort.
Putting Eugene Talmadge’s Wild Legacy within a Contemporary ContextWilliam Anderson’s The Wild Man from Sugar Creek: the Political Career of Eugene Talmadge is one the most engrossing and compelling portraits of a complex American political figure in American literature. It was, in addition, an essential source of the biographical information and historical insights needed to complete the essay titled “The Bridge and the Monument: A Tale of Two Legacies,” published in The American Poet W [...]
Back in the early 1990s, I found myself simultaneously teaching a course on contemporary Georgia at the University of Georgia and researching a biography of Jimmy Carter (published in 1996).

This was a great work. I was surprised at how well written and how much information the author dug up about the man. It's tough digging up stuff from the 1930's and this author covered all the major events from Talmadge's career as well as adding a lot of color from the times. Very engaging and provocative - it makes me realize that the more politics changes, the more it stays the same.
