I d imagine the word universal gets thrown around a lot in regards to this work The temptation of it is exactly why I am excising it from my vocabulary for even the small amount of literature I ve read in the culverts of unacknowledged canon were enough to show the lie of the word I find an immense amount of resonance in this work resonance structured on a foundation of tokenism sentimentality and other measures of self willed isolation commonly shared with other white people works of universal meaning I do not claim that works such as Cities of Salt or Almanac of the Dead do not rely on the same dynamics of self vs other but no one would think to call them universal That epithet reuires power and the world at large is not of a mind to grant them thatHow much does the cult of US American childhood play a part in letting millions of white parents sleep at night Boys will be boys girls will be sugar and sweet and every excuse will be made when a troubled teenage soul slaughters their propagators with gun in hand I wonder how many condemned Frankie s father for letting her roam rather than the systematic excision of her mind from her body by the s of society There are the usual excuses lack of mother lack of white female friends of a common age the lack of urban space commonly put as the ultimate solution by the North and the South As per usual McCullers comes much closer to the heart of it than most who try their hand at the metaphysics of growing up but the threat society places on the body of a young white girl is still centered around that fact of whitenessI may be too old to take as deep a comfort in this as I would have once but my methods of reacting to fear of the oncoming void with rampant imagination are no different now than they were at age twelve and under Enough experience has honed it into a serviceable way of living in this capitalistic age replete with the communication skills and awareness of personal strengths reuisite in this country of mine However I now know that I am never going to grow up for better or for worse Frankie is a white girl who lives in a small Southern town and dreams of Alaska She is Twelve Years Old And years old and the throes of unbelonging Her father h 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 ust deal with loneliness this was trying to explain absolute aloneness That completely exposed and silent

Ys 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 oin 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 ust 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 star.
