Reader recommendation: The Heart is a Lonely Hunter

Monitor readers share their favorite book picks.

Carson McCuller's The Heart is a Lonely Hunter is not only an American classic, it's also a masterpiece! The novel is one of such astounding depth and resonance that I was in awe the whole time I was reading it. And, to think that she authored this book at the tender age of 23.... truly amazing. If you've not already read it, do so now!
