Robert Penn Warren's novels tend to be about the South and often focus on race relations and the legacy of slavery, especially concentrating on the moral costs of slavery and segregation for White Southerners. They often are set in the 19th century or refer back to it.

Start with "All the King's Men" because it's so well known and truly is a classic. "Band of Angels" is also excellent.
