I like McCullers best when she's in the South, rewriting her own childhood and the characters she grew up with. While this collection of stories was interesting, and McCullers is no undoubtedly a good writer, I didn't feel strong connection with any of the characters, nor did I feel that the themes were as interesting or as well-developed as those in her longer works.

BeckyTalbot Your review is spot on. I loved The Heart is a Lonely Hunter, but when I read a few of these, I was disappointed--and felt like they definitely lacked the sense of place that she's so good at.
