The Member Of the Wedding

by McCullers, Carson

The Member of the Wedding is a 1946 novel by Southern writer Carson McCullers. It took McCullers five years to complete—though she interrupted the work for a few months to write the short novel The Ballad of the Sad Cafe.. She explained in a letter to her husband Reeves that it was 'one of those works that the least slip can ruin. It must be beautifully done. For like a poem there is not much excuse for it otherwise.
