Sunday Sentence: The Heart is a Lonely Hunter

“He was the sort of fellow that kids laughed at and dogs wanted to bite.”-Carson McCullers, The Heart is a Lonely Hunter

There are other, more poignant moments in this beautiful book but for some reason IĀ this sentence grabbed me during a recent re-read. I know that sort of man. I know those kids. I felt a prickleĀ of discomfort when I realized I probably had been one of them.


I love reading them, so now I’m joining the #SundaySentence party started by David Abrams over at the Quivering Pen and on Twitter. It’s not a review. It’s not a story. It’s just one sentence I read this week, presented “out of context and without commentary.
