Publisher Comments:

Carson McCullers was all of twenty-three when she published her first novel, The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter. She became an overnight literary sensation, and soon such authors as Tennessee Williams were calling her "the greatest prose writer that the South [has] produced." Available now for the first time on audio from Caedmon and HarperAudio, The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter tells an unforgettable tale of moral isolation in a small southern mill town in the 1930s.

Richard Wright was astonished by McCullers's ability "to rise above the pressures of her environment and embrace white and black humanity in one sweep of apprehension and tenderness." Hers is a humanity that touches all who come to her work, whether for the first time or, as so many do, time and time again. The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter is Carson McCullers at her most compassionate, most enduring best.

Larry Robinson, June 30, 2010 (view all comments by Larry Robinson)
Having never read Carson McCullers before, this book came as quite a surprise to me. A nice surprise. The story is engaging from the beginning, and the reader on the audiobook is wonderful. Essentially, each chapter is a vignette about one character living in small town in Georgia. Some of the characters eventually cross paths, some don't. But each character is intersting in-and-of themselves. Much of the book is heartbreaking, but all of it is engaging.
