With the publication of her first novel, THE HEART IS A LONELY HUNTER, Carson McCullers, all of twenty-three, became a literary sensation. With its profound sense of moral isolation and its compassionate glimpses into its characters' inner lives, the novel is considered McCullers' finest work, an enduring masterpiece first published by Houghton Mifflin in 1940. At its center is the deaf-mute John Singer, who becomes the confidant for various types of misfits in a Georgia mill town during the 1930s. Each one yearns for escape from small town life. When Singer's mute companion goes insane, Singer moves into the Kelly house, where Mick Kelly, the book's heroine (and loosely based on McCullers), finds solace in her music. Wonderfully attuned to the spiritual isolation that underlies the human condition, and with a deft sense for racial tensions in the South, McCullers spins a haunting, unforgettable story that gives voice to the rejected, the forgotten, and the mistreated -- and, through Mick Kelly, gives voice to the quiet, intensely personal search for beauty. Richard Wright praised Carson McCullers for her ability "to rise above the pressures of her environment and embrace white and black humanity in one sweep of apprehension and tenderness." She writes "with a sweep and certainty that are overwhelming," said the NEW YORK TIMES. McCullers became an overnight literary sensation, but her novel has endured, just as timely and powerful today as when it was first published. THE HEART IS A LONELY HUNTER is Carson McCullers at her most compassionate, endearing best.

When Novalee Nation is dumped in the small town of Sequoyah, Oklahoma, by her boyfriend Willie Jack, she can't believe her bad luck is coincidental. Seventeen years old, seven months pregnant and thirty-seven pounds overweight, Novalee is superstitious about the number seven, ever since her mother ran away on her seventh birthday with a baseball umpire named Fred. Fortunately for Novalee, the local Wal-Mart provides a meeting place for most of Sequoyah and Novalee quickly meets three eccentric characters who are to change her life: the blue-haired Sister Thelma Hudson, who hands out photocopied bibles, Benny Goodluck, a young Native American boy, and Moses Whitecotton, a black, elderly photographer who is eager to share all he knows. However, Novalee is determined to depend on nobody but herself, and with only ten dollars to her name she secretly lives in the Wal-Mart at night. It isn't until she goes into labour at the end of closing one day that she learns that sometimes it's not so bad to depend on the kindness of strangers. Where the Heart Is introduces an unforgettable and endearing heroine. Funny, fresh and endearing, it will make you laugh and cry.

Now that Wal-Mart has conquered the US, can it conquer the world? As Wal-Mart World shows, the corporation is certainly trying. For a number of years, Wal-Mart has been the largest company in the United States. Now, though, it is the largest company in the world. Its global labor practices and outsourcing strategies represent for many what contemporary economic globalization is all about. But Wal-Mart is not standing still, and is opening up stores everywhere. From Germany to Beijing to Mexico City to Tokyo, more than a billion shoppers can now hunt for bargains at a Wal-Mart superstore. Wal-Mart World is the first book to look at this incredibly important phenomenon in global perspective, with chapters that range from its growth in the US and impact on labor relations here to its fortunes overseas. How Wal-Mart manages this transition in the near future will play a significant role in the determining the character of the global economy. Wal-Mart World's impressively broad scope makes it necessary reading for anyone interested in the global impact of this economic colossus.
