review The Member of the Wedding Ö eBook or Kindle ePUB E who is utterly hopelessly bored with life until she hears about her older brother’s wedding Bolstered by lively conversations with her house servant Berenice and her six year old male cousin not to mention her own unbridled imagination Frankie takes on an overly active role in the weddin. Searing and sad The Member of the Wedding is a deceptively simple coming of age tale set in the South during the midst of WWII Frankie s a twelve year old white tomboy on the cusp of thirteen who wants nothing than to run away from her distant father and live with her soon to be married brother and his partner Motherless and excluded from other girls activities she spends almost all her summer inside her home s kitchen conversing with her six year old cousin John Henry and her family s Black maid Berenice Experimental in structure the novel alternates between the trio s hypnotic conversations about existential dread love and belonging and scenes sketching the protagonist s time spent outside the home alone or around a sleazy soldier stationed in the town A caustic sense of wit laces the fairly uneventful story and haunting visceral imagery abounds The work considers different responses to the pain of social marginality and ends with a bleak twist

review The Member of the Wedding Ö eBook or Kindle ePUB G hoping even to go uninvited on the honeymoon so deep is her desire to be the member of something larger accepting than herself “A marvelous study of the agony of adolescence” Detroit Free Press The Member of the Wedding showcases Carson McCullers at her most sensitive astute and lasting be. Have you ever picked up a book you are certain you have read before and found that nothing feels familiar on reading it again Of course the first time I read it was for a college course in 1967 so there may be a valid reason aside from lost brain cellssimple time or perhaps short cuts for class But when I reached almost the very end of the book one plot point did seem familiar and now my doubts about truly having read it are goneAs for the book itself Frankie F Jasmine Frances is a wonderful creation Twelve going on forever she is struggling to understand who she is what her world is and where she belongs in the world as a very large whole Over the course of a few days and followed by a short coda we watch her fight with herself her family her housekeeper who is than that almost the whole town as she wages the battle with growing up Of course she doesn t know what the battle is and that is one of the beauties of this novelFrankie s inability to articulate even to herself what is wrong She has one demanddesire to go away with her brother and his new bride after the wedding To escape her life Everyone else knows what the outcome of that demand will beThere are episodes of beautiful prose throughout the novel that capture memories of summer and heat so well Time in August could be divided into four parts morning afternoon twilight and dark At twilight the sky became a curious blue green which soon faded to white The air was soft gray and the arbor and trees were slowly darkening It was the hour when sparrows gathered and whirled above the rooftops of the town and when in the darkened elms along the street there was the August sound of the cicadas Noises at twilight had a blurred sound and they lingered the slam of a screen door down the street voices of children the whir of a lawnmower from a yard somewhere loc 1567This reminds me of summers of my childhood The only stylistic negative for me and this may be personal nitpicking was the degree of repetitiveness in parts of the storytelling For me at times the story stood a bit still Then at some point the forward movement picked up and did not stop even when Frankie continued to be in the kitchen with Berenice Lastly I found Berenice to be a wonderfully realized character who could be a mother substitute a voice of insight on another race and way of life a voice of reason for a girl child approaching her teen years
