The Book of a Lifetime — Daisy Wong's Pick

17 Jul, 2018
【Sustenance of Lonely Hearts】Daisy Wong, CUHK School of Journalism and Communication alumna, recommends 'The Heart is a Lonely Hunter' to you all. The author Carson McCullers was only 23 when she wrote the book, but it seems that she could read everyone's mind. Her portrayal of the loneliness of the characters is so true to life, no matter their gender, age or race - even that of the main deaf-mute character. Carson McCullers became famous overnight because of this book. 

'The loneliness in him was so keen that he was filled with terror... He would talk, and the words created themselves from the dark mornings spent in the streets or in his room alone. The words were formed and spoken with relief.' — The Heart is a Lonely Hunter by Carson McCullers
