Frankie is a white girl who lives in a small Southern town and dreams of Alaska She is twelve years old and in the throes of unbelonging Her father has told her she s too old to sleep in his bed her age mates have formed groups that don t include her and her only day to day company is her six year old cousin John Henry and middle aged Berenice who keeps house Her much older brother visits home with his fiancee and then goes away again to complete the wedding preparations Frankie who will attend the wedding is intensely captivated by the event to come to the point of obsession Carson McCullers being a genius renders this banal situation with the nightmare texture of an agonised crisis of becoming Frankie s unheimlich experience of her ordinary monotonous life seems perpetually liminal Even when she joyously enters the centre connecting with all around her through the bridge of the wedding at last a part of her life that others can relate to a generic topic she strays to the unsafe edges she exaggerates she liesFrankie is an unlikeable protagonist she is awkward self centred and selfish gloomy given to melodrama unfeeling and sometimes manipulative towards others I recognise her totally and terribly I was just like this when I was twelve years old And I swear I ve never felt that about a literary tween or if I have I was kidding myself The honesty of the portrait hurts as Frankie hurts I never stopped loving her and praying for her to be safe and get through the fearful time however horrible she was because she was real to me her pain was real This is what it s really like I constantly felt The relationships and interactions between Frankie and Berenice and John Henry are central John Henry is as convincing a character as Frankie Often he is sympathetic when Frankie uses him to relieve her loneliness or mistreats him when he longs to go out and play with the other children Unlike Frankie his sense of himself is healthy but like her he is at different times both nice and cruel to her in his childish ways Berenice a black woman who has been married several times is sensible straightforward motherly up to a point She coaxes and scolds and warns and protects Frankie often impatient with her but never unkind and often humouring her whims Although Frankie is not satisfied in her need for membership by her relationship with Berenice she takes Berenice s oft repeated anecdotes and life stories to heart they form the basis of her meagre knowledge about romantic love and sexuality Her empathy for Berenice uneven and awkwardly or rudely expressed is redeeming she will not always be this awful awkward twelve year old She will grow into someone capable of loving and caring for othersFrankie s wrestles with her identity and the instabilty of her self perception are staged with the seriousness of tragedy of the grandeur and pain with which Frankie experiences them Her adolescent alienation never elevated to a heroic struggle is embodied in the sometimes disjointed and repetative language which is also hauntingly beautiful like a sorrowful chant It s the writing of a genius of feeling

Totally new review after a 2020 rereadRemember the oppressive boredom of a long and sultry teenage summerFeeling vaguely fearful and fiercely moody at the precipice of childhood s endWanting to be alone grown and babied tooUnsure whether to belong or be differentEverything in flux including your very sense of self This short novel will take you back to that time This was the summer when for a long time she had not been a memberIt was the summer of fear for FrankieThe summer when Frankie was sick and tired of being FrankieThe year when Frankie thought about the world Image Belonging and not by johnhainPixabay SourceMoody and charactersThis is a book of mood and transition than plot Of vivid believable uirky characters It covers a few days in the life of 12 year old tomboy Frankie It s set in the southern US in the early 1940s Frankie s father owns a watch clock and jewellery shop They re white not well off but not poor either They don t own a car but employ Berenice who is colored as a cook housekeeper and childminder Six year old cousin John Henry is often around bright for his age and both a comfort and annoyance to Frankie Her older brother Jarvis is returning after two years away with the army to marry Janice Suddenly everything changes for Frankie including the name she uses F Jasmine and finally Frances one in each section of the book She has some similarities with Scout in To Kill a Mockingbird another motherless tomboy in the deep south albeit slightly youngerFrankie becomes obsessed wanting to be a part of not just the wedding but the married life of her brother and the bride she has yet to meet They are the we of me In a subtle masterstroke of not belonging the eponymous wedding happens offstage we see the buildup and the aftermath with only a few retrospective details of the event itself The wedding was like a dream outside her power or like a show unmanaged by her in which she was supposed to have no part Passing through the valley of the shadow of death sex There was an uneasy doubt that she could not uite place or name Frankie s mother died giving birth to her and she s known other people who died But it s the shadow of puberty sexuality and sex that lingers darkly and puzzlingly The pain of no longer being able to share her father s bed Misunderstandings of things seen and heard A misread and potentially dangerous situation made me shudder with fear over many familiar pages A wedding is a happy occasion but the mood of the story is heavy with increasing foreboding albeit sprinkled with touching moments and gentle humour The final tragedy is unexpected unnecessary and powerfulImage Taylor Flanagan as Frankie Chelsea Manasseri as Berenice and Jago Mystiek as John Henry Photo by by Errich Petersen SourceRadicalSegregation is the unseen line but neither McCullers nor her characters think colored people should be separated and there s a very matter of fact and accepting conversation about a cross dressing gay man using terminology of the timeAt the last supper before the wedding Berenice and Frankie put the world to rights and get existential Berenice would have no separate colored people with everyone having light brown skin blue eyes like her glass eye and black hair And no war Frankie wants material things like planes and motorcycles for everyone a better law of gravity I love that and for people to be able instantly change back and forth from boys to girls How radical is that for 1946MultisensoryIt s words on a page but vividly so Pages permeated by music as all McCullers works are she was offered a place to study piano at Juilliard Here it s the recurring jazz spangle of a piano tuner in a neighbours house leaving melodies unfinished I m sure I d know the fragrance of Sweet Serenade if I ever encountered it And bridging words visuals and scent is lavender usually an aromatic plant but here the colour of lips ears sky and an evening Relishing revisitingI first read this poignant novella about a tomboy near teen when I was a tomboy teen desperately wanting to be adult but wary too Longing to belong but also yearning to be uniuely myself if I could only figure out what that was I ve read it at least a couple of times since and again now my own child is beyond a teen It s all so true even though it s set in a time and place I ve never been This was the first McCullers I read and one of the first American books I read A schoolfriend who is still a close friend suggested it and I went on to read all McCullers other books than once Catherine thank youImage Carson McCullers Sourceuotes The summer was like a green sick dream or like a silent crazy jungle under glass The sound of whistling and it was a grieving August song that did not end The minutes were very long The lavender sky had at last grown dark and there was slanted starlight and twisted shade Noises at twilight had a blurred sound and they lingered Their voices bloomed like flowers She had the feeling that unknown words were in her throat and she was ready to speak them Strange words were flowering in her throat and now was the time for her to name them The trees were poison green There was a jellied stillness in the air

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
