The Member of the Wedding Paperback
Part of the Penguin Modern Classics series
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.
