Carson McCullers : Stories, Plays & Other Writings (Loa #287): Complete Stories / The Member of the Wedding: A Play / The Sojourner / The Square Root o
by Carson McCullers and Carlos L. Dews




Overview -
A landmark gathering of McCullers' shorter works, including all her published stories, plays, essays, poems, and an unfinished autobiography

Celebrated worldwide for her masterly novels, Carson McCullers was equally accomplished, and equally moving, when writing in shorter forms. This Library of America volume brings together for the first time her twenty extraordinary stories, along with plays, essays, memoirs, and poems. Here are the indelible tales "Madame Zilensky and the King of Finland" and "A Tree. A Rock. A Cloud." as well as her previously uncollected story about the civil rights movement, "The March"; her award- winning Broadway play The Member of the Wedding and the unpublished teleplay The Sojourner; twenty-two essays; and the revealing unfinished memoir Illumination and Night Glare. This wide-ranging gathering of shorter works reveals new depths and dimensions of the writer whom V. S. Pritchett praised for her "courageous imagination--one that is bold enough to consider the terrible in human nature without loss of nerve, calm, dignity, or love."

LIBRARY OF AMERICA is an independent nonprofit cultural organization founded in 1979 to preserve our nation's literary heritage by publishing, and keeping permanently in print, America's best and most significant writing.
