She is best known for her novels The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter, The Ballad of the Sad Café, Reflections in a Golden Eye, and The Member of the Wedding, all published between 1940 and 1946. At least four of her works have been made into films." - "Carson McCullers." New Georgia Encyclopedia. http://www.georgiaencyclopedia.org (Retrieved August 25, 2008)
