The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter by Carson McCullers
A public library book, read and reviewed on LibraryThing in January, 2014
Even though it was a book well written with good character development, I did not enjoy reading it. Not my cup of tea. A dark, depressing, sad book of family dysfunction and urban loneliness. A group of misfits center around a quiet, mysterious deaf-mute. Everyone invests him with the answers and qualities that they are most in need of, but no one realizes his needs and problems, his desperate loneliness and inability to communicate.
