***Gang if any of you are ever feeling lonely, depressed, and hopeless, watch this movie, it will put you back in prospective. There is a book, which I have not read, which may be available.

The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter is the debut 1940 novel by American author Carson McCullers. Written in Charlotte, North Carolina, in houses on Central Avenue and East Boulevard,[1][2] it is about a deaf man named John Singer and the people he encounters in a 1930s mill town in the US state of Georgia. It created a literary sensation on publication, enjoying a meteoric rise to the top of the bestseller lists in 1940 and was the first in a string of works by McCullers to give voice to the rejected, forgotten, mistreated and oppressed. The novel was chosen as a selection for Oprah's Book Club in 2004.

In 1998, the Modern Library ranked The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter seventeenth on its list of the 100 best English-language novels of the 20th century. Time magazine included the novel in its TIME 100 Best English-language Novels from 1923 to 2005.[3]

What you all may not know is that the author suffered isolation, illnesses, divorces, and much saddness. The author had several stokes before the age of 30, felt as if the world was not accepting of her disabilities or mental disabilities, etc.
