The novel that has charmed generations of readers. Here is the story of the inimitable twelve-year-old Frankie, who is utterly, hopelessly bored with life until she hears about her older brother’s wedding.

Bolstered by lively conversations with her house servant, Berenice, and her six-year-old male cousin - not to mention her own unbridled imagination - Frankie takes on an overly active role in the wedding, hoping even to go, uninvited, on the honeymoon, so deep is her desire to be the member of something larger, more accepting than herself.

“A marvelous study of the agony of adolescence” (Detroit Free Press), this book  showcases Carson McCullers at her most sensitive, astute, and lasting best.
