Finally done with The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter and whoa, gotta think this one through a bit more. I love the whole "Have to face the new day" ending, and Biff's POV was the best to end with. But how did McCullers come up with this at 23? In the 1940s with Civil Rights barely beginning to boil? The spiels between Copeland and Jake Blount? Two characters that could not have been more different yet share the same ideology....I need to get my hands on more books like this, that make me contemplate human nature and its restrictions.
