The Member of the Wedding
Harper Lee's Scout could be a sister to unforgettable narrator Frankie (or as she sometimes refers to herself, F. Jasmine). In this bittersweet story of a girl wracked with boredom, obsession and angst that simmers and nearly boils over, we are reminded of the poignancy of youth, of the sultry listlessness of summer—and of McCullers's uncommon sensitivity.
