The Heart is a Lonely Hunter

The Heart is a Lonely Hunter by Carson McCullers, 2/5

As with most modern literature, I didn’t “get” this and am having a hard time even finding reasons to justify the value of its existence.  The book was unfocussed at best, as well as being dark and depressing.  Some scenes resonated with me, but most of it left me wondering how McCullers could possibly have been motivated to finish writing it, or, once finished, imagine that anyone would be interested in reading it.
