The Heart Is A Lonely Hunter by Carson McCullers (1940)
The Heart Is A Lonely Hunter follows the yearning exploits of four disparate misfits living in a small Georgia mill town in the 1930’s. Their only connection is a friendship with Mr. Singer, a deaf man who they all separately believe to be the only one who understands them.
A heartbreaking examination of our limited ability, as human beings, to communicate what goes on in our hearts, and the ways people try and fail to relate to each other.
I liked this book a lot! Big ups to Neil Bhandari for recommending this bad boy!
