Carson McCullers: A Life

The first biographer to have the full cooperation of the McCullers estate, Savigneau uncovers the private Carson McCullers (author of American classics "The Heart is a Lonely Hunter" and "The Member of the Wedding")--a woman whose candor and immense emotional needs overshadowed her great charm, generosity, loyalty, humor, and deep intelligence.

This book tells of Carson McCuller's relationships with her family, friends and fellow authors & artists. Her contentious relationship with her husband, Reeves McCullers, the wanna-be author whom she married twice, is thoroughly discussed. Although her life was filled with pain from her "mysterious illness" and difficult relationships, the author shows how Carson had a strong desire to survive and keep writing. It was interesting to read about her life-long friendship with Tennesse Williams and her love-hate relationship with Truman Capote. The author gathered together the opinions of many people who knew Carson, whether they loved her or hated her, and shares them with us in this story of her life.
