about

A classic work that has charmed generations of readers, this collection assembles Carson McCullers's best stories, including her beloved novella 'The Ballad of the Sad Cafe.' A haunting tale of a human triangle that culminates in an astonishing brawl, the novella introduces readers to Miss Amelia, a formidable southern woman whose cafe serves as the town's gathering place.
