The Timeless Carson McCullers

Record #:
80 years ago, author Carson McCullers began working in Charlotte on her best-selling novel The Heart is a Lonely Hunter. McCullers setting in her novel is similar to the setting of Charlotte today and many of the same issues she wrote about then, are still relevant now. McCullers struggled with her sexual identity and fitting in and the author of the article wonders if much would have changed for McCullers if she were alive and trying to write the same novel today. The history of the novel, the author, and the social issues of the periods are discussed.
