To read: Carson McCullers’ The Member of the Wedding

Kind of a different Follow Friday, once a week I’m going to try to put a book review that’s inspired me to stick something on my to-read list.

This week, it’s Tom Cox’s Guardian review of The Member of the Wedding. I have really vague memories of picking this up at the library about 10 years ago and then never getting very far with it, but The Heart is a Lonely Hunter is one of my all-time favourite novels so I think it’s about time I gave her other work a look – there are only four novels so it’s fair enough to ration them a little…

I dunno, people kind of roll their eyes at literary crushes on Carson McCullers these days, but man it is so easy!
