Standard Name: McCullers, Carson
Birth Name: Lula Carson Smith
's four novels and one novella, published between 1940 and 1961, compose a startling picture of the American South, from which she came: a society in which people's behaviour is in part wholly predictable, constrained by buried history and inherited codes of conduct, and in part opaque, springing from irrational passion, prejudice, and fixation. Though her output was severely limited by ill-health, it also included short stories, poems, essays, drama, and an unfinished autobiography.
