The Ballad of the Sad Cafe was my first foray into the works of Carson McCullers. A mainstay of Southern Gothic literature, linked in that regard with the likes of William Faulkner, Flannery O’Connor, Tennessee Williams, Harper Lee, etc., I knew I appreciated this style but had never sampled McCullers’s contributions. I had heard a lot of rhapsodizing about her prose and characterization, so I went into this reading with high expectations. Thankfully, I was not disappointed.
