Biographical/Historical Note

"With a collection of work including five novels, two plays, twenty short stories, more than two dozen nonfiction pieces, a book of children's verse, a small number of poems, and an unfinished autobiography, Carson McCullers is considered to be among the most significant American writers of the twentieth century. 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. (Retrieved August 25, 2008)

The Mortgaged Heart is posthumous collection of essays, poems and stories published in 1971, four years after McCullers' death.
