Summary (From the publisher):

Carson McCullers died in 1967 after a too-brief life of pain and personal trial, but her celebrated place in American letters survives more surely than ever.This volume gathers together a large selection of her previously uncollected work--short stories, essays and poetry, including eight stories never before published. These writings span more than thirty years, from 'Sucker,' written when she was seventeen, to 'A Hospital Christmas Eve,' published after her death. Several of the pieces appeared in magazines now long out of print and almost impossible to obtain. The unpublished stories printed here for the first time were found among her papers by her sister and literary executor, Margarita G. Smith, who has edited this collection.
