In one volume, the complete short fiction of the author of The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter , including her two most renowned novellas.

Carson McCullers--novelist, dramatist, poet--was at the peak of her powers as a writer of short fiction. Here are nineteen stories that explore her signature themes including loneliness in marriage and the tragicomedy of life in the South. Included in this volume are "The Member of the Wedding" and "The Ballad of the Sad Café," novellas that Tennessee Williams judged to be "assuredly among the masterpieces of our language."

"McCullers patented the Southern gothic genre that embraces grotesque, morbid characters with such pervading themes as unrequited love and wounded adolescence. Largely set in the South and richly autobiographical, her writings have endured because of their great power and originality." -- Library Journal
