A review of carson mc cullers works

Since you will not have read any recent report of a British man arrested whilst trying to break into the Sinatra family crypt, you will perceive that I m Fascinated by the garish grisly life of Miss Carson McCullers I embarked upon this big fat bio, and first I thought it might be a mistake, as the last big fat bio I read Sinatra made me want to fly to America and disinter Sinatra's remains for the simple pleasure I might have gained in booting Frankie's skull about whilst yelling obscenities.

  1. Anyway, the whole gay thing loomed fairly large, but yet larger loomed the whole ILL thing. She was a valetudinarian.
  2. Check out this sentence which appears in paragraph three. This bio doesn't say so in as many words, but it seems clear to me.
  3. Good thing, then, that by her mid 20s she'd written all her major novels except one.
  4. The sharp girl who had cast such an unforgiving eye on the world around her became a woman imprisoned by her own initial success and her inability to replicate it. Fortunately the rest of it was much better.
  5. That was really a dead giveaway. She was a valetudinarian.

Since you will not have read any recent report of a British man arrested whilst trying to break into the Sinatra family crypt, you will perceive that I managed to suppress my unseemly impulse.

So many ideas swill and slosh around in these pages — in this life.

For instance, sexual orientation. So she sings this: Sometimes men love women, sometimes men love men, and then there are bisexuals, though some just say they're kidding themselves.

But how many gay people in those days were driven into marriages because at first they thought all their feelings were wrong and marriage to some good man or woman would straighten them out? I bet that's what Carson did. This bio doesn't say so in as many words, but it seems clear to me. But she did learn to smoke a pipe and drink like a fish. Anyway, the whole gay thing loomed fairly large, but yet larger loomed the whole ILL thing.

She was a valetudinarian. Yes, ill all the time. She had stuff wrong with her the doctors couldn't put a name too. She was thirty years ahead of her time with her ailments. Good thing, then, that by her mid 20s she'd written all her major novels except one.
