The Heart is a Lonely Hunter - Carson McCullers This book floored me. How a 23 year woman in the 1930's deep south could write like this is astounding. Carson McCullers was a true empath with a brilliant mind that was only surpassed by her heart.

I don't have much more to say about this book except that I cannot believe it was made into a movie. I don't ever ever want to see this film. There is no way that even the finest acting could recreate the brilliance of her characters' internal dialogue. Impossible.
