Summary (From the publisher):

A grotesque human triangle in a primitive Southern town...A young boy learning the difficult lessons of manhood...A fateful encounter with his native land and former love...These are parts of the world of Carson McCullers- a world of the lost, the injured, the eternal strangers at life's feast. Here are brilliant revelations of love and longing, bitter heartbreak and occasional happiness- tales that probe the very heart of our lives.
