  1. I get the weird impression that there is a race to be the most Gothic southern Gothic writer out there. I hear that expression a lot, and I think it’s a roundabout way for people to compare writers to Flannery O’Connor. And it works! I cannot resist the lure of anything described as “southern Gothic.”

  2. Nice reviews. 🙂 I felt much the same about A River in Egypt- appreciated the concept but didn’t connect with the writing style or feel that it accomplished much. But The Haunted Boy sounds very good! I’ve read a few of the Penguin Moderns but haven’t looked into this one. I will now!

    • Thank you! I’m glad I’m not alone with A River in Egypt. I’d love to hear your thoughts on The Haunted Boy! It’s got me very excited to read some more McCullers in the future 😊
