I d imagine the word universal gets thrown around a lot in regards to this work The temptation of it is Integrity Restored: Helping Catholic Families Win the Battle Against Pornography exactly why I amxcising it from my vocabulary for The Taste of Night (Signs of the Zodiac, even the small amount of literature I ve read in the culverts of unacknowledged canon werenough to show the lie of the word I find an immense amount of resonance in this work resonance structured on a foundation of tokenism sentimentality and other measures of self willed isolation commonly shared with other white people works of universal meaning I do not claim that works such as Cities of Salt or Almanac of the Dead do not rely on the same dynamics of self vs other but no one would think to call them universal That pithet reuires power and the world at large is not of a mind to grant them thatHow much does the cult of US American childhood play a part in letting millions of white parents sleep at night Boys will be boys girls will be sugar and sweet and very xcuse will be made when a troubled teenage soul slaughters their propagators with gun in hand I wonder how many condemned Frankie s father for letting her roam rather than the systematic xcision of her mind from her body by the s of society There are the usual The Road From Home: The Story Of An Armenian Girl excuses lack of mother lack of white female friends of a common age the lack of urban space commonly put as the ultimate solution by the North and the South As per usual McCullers comes much closer to the heart of it than most who try their hand at the metaphysics of growing up but the threat society places on the body of a young white girl is still centered around that fact of whitenessI may be too old to take as deep a comfort in this as I would have once but my methods of reacting to fear of the oncoming void with rampant imagination are no different now than they were at age twelve and under Enoughxperience has honed it into a serviceable way of living in this capitalistic age replete with the communication skills and awareness of personal strengths reuisite in this country of mine However I now know that I am never going to grow up for better or for worse Have you ver picked up a book you are certain you have read before and found that nothing feels familiar on reading it again Of course the first time I read it was for a college course in 1967 so there may be a valid reason aside from lost brain cellssimple time or perhaps short cuts for class But when I reached almost the very nd of the book one plot point did seem familiar and now my doubts about truly having read it are goneAs for the book itself Frankie F Jasmine Frances is a wonderful creation Twelve going on forever she is struggling to understand who she is what her world is and where she belongs in the world as a very large whole Over the course of a few days and followed by a short coda we watch her fight with herself her family her housekeeper who is than that almost the whole town as she wages the battle with growing housekeeper who is than that almost the whole town as she wages the battle with growing Of course she doesn t know what the battle is and that is one of the beauties of this novelFrankie s inability to articulate ven to herself what is wrong She has one demanddesire to go away with her brother and his new bride after the wedding To scape her life Everyone lse knows what the OUTCOME OF THAT DEMAND WILL BETHERE of that demand will beThere pisodes of beautiful prose throughout the novel that capture memories of summer and heat so #well Time in August could be divide.
