Please don't use personal websites as sources. (At any rate, Carson McCullers' bisexuality was already verified by the Georgia encyclopedia link.) Devil Doll 03:27, 21 May 2006 (UTC)

Regarding "The novel itself was interpreted as an anti-fascist book" = does anyone have a citation for this.DianaW 03:00, 28 October 2006 (UTC)

Is this of interest? There is a biography of Carson McCullers. The title is "The Lonely Hunter A Biography of Carson McCullers" The author is Virginia Spencer Carr The ISBN is 0-385-04028-8 Published 1975 by Doubleday. Duckert (talk) 02:16, 27 March 2008 (UTC)

I moved the link for "The Ballad of the Sad Cafe" from the reference to the short story collection to just the novella, as the current wikipage deals only with the title story. SarahTheEntwife (talk) 12:53, 7 December 2013 (UTC)

And now I moved the link back because it turns out Ballad was never published as a separate work as far as I can tell, so it seems more appropriate to change its wikipage to reference the whole collection. The page is badly in need of a complete overhaul anyway. Whoops! SarahTheEntwife (talk) 13:13, 7 December 2013 (UTC)

Rewrite 0112[edit]

These edits are largely copy-edit rewriting with very little change (at least intent to change) content; pls meet me in Talk if you have any concern(s).--Jbeans (talk) 15:10, 12 January 2014 (UTC)

rheumatic fever[edit]

One cannot contract rheumatic fever as this article states. Rheumatic fever is not contagious. People who have rheumatic fever have initially contracted the bacterium Streptococcus pyogenes that is contagious and causes infection (often manifesting as a sore throat or "strep throat")which THEN may or may not lead to rheumatic fever. Rheumatic fever is considered a sequelae of an infection of S. pyogenes and not all who are infected get rheumatic fever. It really should be restated that she contracted a streptococcal infection which lead in her case to rheumatic fever. Contracting rheumatic fever itself, is not medically possible.
