McCullers’ breakout novel, The Heart is a Lonely Hunter, depicts the isolation and desperation of those living in the margins of a small mill town in 1930’s Georgia. The popularity of the book has endured and is a timely today as when it was first published in 1940. Richard Wright praised Carson McCullers for her ability “to rise above the pressures of her environment and embrace white and black humanity in one sweep of apprehension and tenderness.”
