Carson McCullers

McCullers, photographed by<br>[[Carl Van Vechten]], 1959 Carson McCullers (February 19, 1917 – September 29, 1967) was an American novelist, short story writer, playwright, essayist, and poet. Her first novel, ''The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter'', explores the spiritual isolation of misfits and outcasts in a small town of the U.S. South. Her other novels have similar themes and most are set in the deep South.

McCullers’ oeuvre is often described as Southern Gothic and indicative of her southern roots. However, McCullers penned all of her work after leaving the South, and critics also describe her writing and eccentric characters as universal in scope. Her stories have been adapted to stage and film. A stagework of her novel ''The Member of the Wedding'' (1946), which captures a young girl's feelings at her brother's wedding, made a successful Broadway run in 1950–51. Provided by Wikipedia
