Finally they found one band, who allowed themselves to be seen, because they were close to dying from dehydration. McCullers became an overnight literary sensation, but her novel has endured, just as timely and powerful today as when it was first published. Are the efforts successful or ultimately futile? On his way home, Jake sees a quote from the Bible written on a wall.

Unable to communicate with speech, they see in his gentle disposition, attentive eyes and kind smile the transmission of a profound empathy with their individual struggles and a profound wisdom not dependent upon the conventional limitations of language as the means of communication. McCullers's original title for the book was The Mute. Each one yearns for escape from small town life. One day, when Mick is sitting out on the front steps with her brother Bubber, Bubber accidentally shoots Baby Wilson in the head with his friend's BB gun. But even then the question of who anyone really is and what they stand for remains open.

Harry is Jewish and frequently worries about the Nazi regime in Germany; aside from Biff, Harry is one of the only characters who pays close attention to world events. The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter has been praised for its sensitive and realistic portrayal of racial tensions in the Depression-era South. Writing is a wandering, dreaming occupation. The artist has kept possession of the vast bulk of his artwork.
