Sinopse – Complete Novels – Carson McCullers
Set in small Georgia towns that are at once precisely observed and mythically resonant, McCullers’ novels explore the strange, sometimes grotesque inner lives of characters who are often marginal and misunderstood. Above all, McCullers possessed an unmatched ability to capture the bewilderment and fragile wonder of adolescence. In ‘The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter’, an enigmatic deaf-mute draws out the haunted confessions of an itinerant worker, a young girl, a black doctor, and the widowed owner of a small-town café. Two shorter works, ‘Reflections in a Golden Eye’ (1941) and ‘The Ballad of the Sad Café’ (1943), use melodramatic scenarios and freakish characters to explore the disfiguring violence of desire. ‘The Member of the Wedding’ (1946), on which the play and film were based, tells of a young girl’s fascination with her brother’s wedding. In ‘Clock Without Hands’ (1960), the story of a terminally ill druggist, McCullers produces some of her most forceful and indignant social criticism.
