4.0 out of 5 stars The Heart Is A Lonely Hunter, 14 Jun. 2009
This review is from: The Heart is a Lonely Hunter (Penguin Modern Classics) (Mass Market Paperback)
First published in the early 1940s, 'The Heart Is A Lonely Hunter' is an originally written story of small-town America with its poverty and prejudice at the core of the story. The narrative moves from one character to the other, drawing different views of the town and its people from chapter to chapter. We see the town from the perspective of a deaf-mute, an adolescent girl, a bar owner, a drunk and a black doctor. The numerous central characters are drawn into focus by a number of grim incidents that change the town and the relationships of its inhabitants. The novel is a great example of fine prose writing that draws the reader into its fragile world and is an essential text for anyone interested in 20th century American literature.
