About the Author

Carson McCullers (1917–1967) was the author of numerous works of fiction and nonfiction, including The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter, The Member of the Wedding, Reflections in a Golden Eye, and Clock Without Hands. Born in Columbus, Georgia, on February 19, 1917, she became a promising pianist and enrolled in the Juilliard School of Music in New York when she was seventeen, but lacking money for tuition, she never attended classes. Instead, she studied writing at Columbia University, which ultimately led to The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter, the novel that made her an overnight literary sensation. On September 29, 1967, at age fifty, she died in Nyack, New York, where she is buried.

Review

The greatest prose writer that the South produced ... She has examined the heart of man with an understanding that no other writer can hope to surpass--Tennessee Williams

Of all the Southern writers, she is the most apt to endure--Gore Vidal

Again [McCullers] shows a sort of subterranean and ageless instinct for probing the hidden in men's hearts and minds--New York Herald-Tribune --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
