Penguin Modern Classics: Heart is a Lonely Hunter - Carson MacCullers
Carson McCullers's prodigious first novel was published to instart acclaim when she was just twenty-three. Set in a small town in the middle of the deep South, it is the story of John Singer, a lonely deafmute, and a disparate group of people who are drawn towards his kind, sympathetic nature. The owner of the cafe where Singer eats every day, a young girl desperate to grow up, an angry drunkard, a frustrated black doctor: each pours their heart out of Singer, their silent confidant, and he in turn changes their disenchanted lived in ways they could never imagine...
Moving, sensitive and deeply humane, The Heart is a Lonely Hunter explores loneliness the human need for understanding and our search for love.
