THE BALLAD OF THE SAD CAFE : The Novels and Stories of Carson McCullers

Carson McCullers is a phenomenon in American literature. Her first book, which was published when she was only twenty-two, was immediately recognized as the work of an extraordinary talent. Her second, a grotesque adventure into the emotional underworld, was described as Southern writing at its most gothic but also at its best. Her third, which received equally high praise, has now become one of the most talked-of plays on Broadway. Her reputation abroad is equaled by only a handful of contemporary American writers, and her books have been translated into nine foreign languages.

This book contains her three novels as well as her novella, The Ballad of the Sad Cafe, and the most important of her short stories. It is the material that has made one of the most exciting reputations in young American writing.
