Ep 652 - The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter, by Carson McCullers

Sometimes you read a book from 1940 and you get a little upset about how relevant its characters and themes remain more than 80 years later. Sometimes! McCullers' debut novel explores capitalism, alienation, and poverty in the American South at the tail end of the Great Depression.

Our theme music was composed by Nick Lerangis.
