Summary
Story of deaf-mute John Singer, who becomes the confidant for all various types of misfits in a Georgia mill town during the 1930s. Each one yearns for escape from small town life. When Singer's mute companion goes insane, Singer moves into the Kelly house, where Mick Kelly, the book's heroine (and loosely based on McCullers), finds solace in her music. Wonderfully attune to the spiritual isolation that underlies the human condition, and with a deft sense for racial tensions in the South, McCullers spins a haunting, unforgettable story that gives voice to the rejected, the forgotten, and the mistreated
Summary
A deeply moving story of a group of people who, in the loneliness of their hearts, respond to the seemingly inscrutable but gentle and sympathetic appeal of a deaf mute, confident that he alone has found what they are blindly groping for. Set in the South in the 1930s.
