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.

Performed by Cherry Jones

Carson McCullers was born in Columbus, Georgia, on February 19, 1917. She died at age fifty in Nyack, New York. She is the author of, among other books, Reflections in a Golden Eye, Clock Without Hands, and The Member of the Wedding.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Read There is a photograph of Carson on the cover of this novel. She is 23 years old in both the photograph and at the time of writing this novel. From what I understand, this novel has become a classic and there are hints that it is somewhat auto-biographical. A very intense look at the characters in this small southern town, the blacks, the whites, and the Jews as Hitler comes into power and the role of women. The end of this novel is somewhat tragic as the lives of the character seem to unravel.
