This is not the edition I read mine is a 700 page chunk of delicious reading published by uality Paperback Books in 1991My favorite was the first short story in the collection The Ballad of the Sad CafeThe Heart is a Lonely Hunter made me wonder if Carson McCullers and Harper Lee knew each other The young Mick Kelly reminded me a bit of Scout in To Kill A Mockingbird Mick spends a lot of time thinking about a million things Some kind of music was too private to sing in a house cram full of people It was funny too how lonesome a person could be in a crowded house Mick tried to think of some good private place where she could go and be by herself and study about this music But though she thought about this a long time she knew in the beginning that there was no good placeIt's easy to find pieces of yourself in McCullers' characters We've dreamed dreams like theirs and felt similar longings McCullers is uite a contrast to another southern writer I love Flannery O'Connor O'Connor's characters are larger than life stranger than all get out someone you might never meet in real life McCullers writes with kindness about everyday folks
