Product description

The best way to experience this classic of the American South is by joining five-time Academy Award nominee and Best Actress winner Susan Sarandon ("Dead Man Walking," "Thelma & Louise") as she guides the listener on a journey through the anguish of adolescence and isolation. "Rarely has emotional turbulence been so delicately conveyed," said "The New York Times" of Carson McCullers' sensitive portrayal of Frankie Addams, a disconnected 12-year-old whose only friends are her family s maid and a six-year-old cousin. Desperate to be part of something big, she takes an overlarge interest in her brother s wedding and dreams of following the couple on their honeymoon to the Alaskan wilderness. But as Frankie crosses into adulthood, she experiences the fantasy-shattering disillusionment that must come with it. This is a story for anybody who s ever felt like an outsider and a natural fit for Ms. Sarandon, a master at creating authentic, sympathetic characters. "The Member of the Wedding" is part of Audible s A-List Collection, featuring the world s most celebrated actors narrating distinguished works of literature that each star had a hand in selecting."
