As my reading tastes expand I attempt to read books by women authors from across the globe both contemporary and classic My reading journey until now had never included the work of Carson McCullers even though my mother has been urging me to read her books for years When a few friends from the reading for pleasure group said that they were doing a buddy read of McCullers Member of a Wedding I was pushed to join them While not as highly regarded as her definitive work The Heart is a Lonely Hunter Member of a Wedding is McCullers tale of coming of age in the south in the 1940s a story of a misfit girl in need of guidance to navigate the world This touching story has generated many discussions in our buddy read and one that I am grateful to have joinedFrankie Addams is twelve years old and has grown up in an unnamed rural community in Georgia She reminds me of an older Scout Finch yet less informed before her father is for the most part absent from her life Like Scout Frankie comes from a family where her mother died in childbirth leaving her father a widower who never remarries It is up to the family s colored housekeeper Berenice to guide Frankie through her childhood and while Berenice is always around to provide hugs and cookies she has left Frankie largely unaware of the world at large At the cusp of puberty Frankie remains na ve to the changes about to happen to her and still runs wild with her younger cousin John Henry West Having no female friends or family members to teach her about the birds and the bees Frankie is perfectly cast as the town s misfit while Berenice prays that a girl best friend enters her life sooner than laterIt is in this context that we meet twelve year old Frankie in the August of her brother s wedding as she plots to leave her home and join her brother on a worldwide adventure through life She tells her father and Berenice and anyone who will listen that when the family goes to the wedding in Winter Hill that she will not be coming back Naturally because her brother s name is Jarvis and his bride to be is named Janice Frankie decides to call herself Jasmine making her a natural member of the JA club She believes that Jarvis and Janice will adopt her and take her with them wherever they go making her a member of their wedding This plotting leads Frankie to buy a lewd dress for the occasion that John Henry dubs a Christmas tree and has her gallivanting through town on adventures as she is restless and has no adult guidance in her life While Berenice teases her for her choice of gown she does little to stop Frankie from exploring her community even when she is on the verge of grave danger The father just nods when Frankie says she is not coming back because either he does not believe this to be true or he is so removed from his daughter s life that he does not know what goes on at his home on a daily basis With the home life being what it was I almost wanted Frankie to leave town even though I knew that this was not a feasible possibilityMcCullers can flat out write Her style is simple and soothing that has the reader reeled in from the opening paragraphs Yet the writing is also insightful as she creates multi layered characters and creates a place for them in the world at large In many meaningful exchanges between Frankie and Berenice McCullers has Frankie asking her housekeeper if the reason why she does not have many opportunities available before her is due to her skin color This is wise beyond a twelve year old s years and also ahead of her time for the south during the Jim Crow era McCullers lived some of her adult life in New York and may have been influenced by northern life As a result she has inserted forward thinking characters into a largely backward thinking southern town While the two do not entirely mesh McCullers has spun a soothing southern tale that takes readers back to simpler timesMy friends in this buddy read listened to an audio version narrated by Susan Sarandon While I did not have the audio on hand I envisioned how Sarandon would speak various portions of the novel adding an extra layer to the beauty of this book Although I still have not read McCullers definitive work I thoroughly enjoyed The Member of the Wedding This novel allowed me to end my reading year on a positive note as I enjoyed my time with this classic southern author and made for compelling discussions in our small buddy read group While McCullers other novels do not feature Frankie Addams I am looking forward to spending time with this gifted novelist in the years to come45 stars

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

She was afraid of these things that made her suddenly wonder who she was and what she was going to be in the world and why she was standing at that minute seeing a light or listening or staring up into the sky aloneI read a lot about loneliness Overwhelmingly the books that I gravitate towards seem to have at least some thread of loneliness But thisthis didn t just deal with loneliness this was trying to explain absolute aloneness That completely exposed and silent and almost panicked feeling of being just you by yourself in a world full of we part of nothing and no one I was a child who was alone a lot and there were passages in here that were painfully realistic to me So many dusks in darkened backyards with the distant sounds of people s dishes clinking a dog barking other kid s voices and maybe a faraway radio or car horn and none of it is yours This little girl narrator stood around walked around sat around She wanted out She needed someone almost anyone She looked up from the twilight into lighted house windows and peered into doorways searching She was selfish and mean with flashes of anger but that anger made so much sense to me She s stuck and we re all stuck and damned if I of all people don t know just how futile it can turn out to be to leave a place and start over and find that distant dog barks and car horns are everywhere especially at duskThis book surprised me I liked it than Lonely Hunter perhaps because I related to it on a deeper level but even the writing felt intimate to me tortured and dreamy and in parts philosophical As others have pointed out the ending feels oddly tacked on and almost ruins the perfect tension in the first 90% of the book Almost
