The Member of the Wedding, Paperback


With delicacy of perception and memory, humour and pathos, Carson McCullers spreads before us the three phases of a weekend crisis in the life of a motherless twelve-year-old girl.

Within the span of a few hours, the irresistible, hoydenish Frankie passionately plays out her fantasies at her elder brother's wedding.

Through a perilous skylight we look into the mind of a child torn between her yearning to belong and the urge to run away.
