I loved The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter
and The Member of the Wedding
. I love McCullers's minimalist writing style.
I did not love Reflections in a Golden Eye
It seems like a good story - a true love-triangle. (Or love-square? Maybe love-trapezoid.) Taking place on an Army base in the American South we have Captain Penderton and his wife, Leonora, and Major Langdon, his sickly wife, Alison, and their houseboy, Anacleto. Then there's Private Williams who once saw Leonora nekkid and has become a bit obsessed with her. Turns out that Captain Penderton has a bit of a crush of his own, but not any of the obvious choices.
For some reason the story never quite gelled for me. I kept waiting for the story to actually begin. It felt that it was all preparation, all a very long introduction to basically very little. I did, however, like the Afterword by Tennessee Williams. Strangely this is all I have to say about this book.
This is the worst review ever. I think I'm broken. Thank you.
