Like other writers of the Great Depres­sion, whose reputations are now being given a rehabilitative new look, Miss Lumpkin has remained known only to serious students of American literature and has been underappreciated until now, as readers of The Wedding, her third novel, will know. According to Lillian Gilkes, Miss Lumpkin deserves to be studied in col­lege courses, along with her Southern compeers: Eudora Welty, Katherine Anne Porter, Carson McCullers, and Flannery O’Connor. The Wedding is a significant addition to the small shelf of the American novel of manners. It is permanently valuable as social history, but it is also a perfectly controlled work of literary art. As in the novels of Jane Austen, nothing exciting happens in the most convincing way. The story is literally nothing but an account of the marriage of Jennie Mid­dleton, the eldest living daughter of a ruined aristocratic family in 1909 who live by the code of the Confederacy, and Dr. Gregg, from their quarrel the night before the wedding to the description of the ceremony going off on schedule de­spite it.

The novel that became an award-winning play and a major motion picture and that has charmed generations of readers, Carson McCullers’s classic The Member of the Wedding is now available in small- format trade paperback for the first time. Here is the story of the inimitable twelve-year-old Frankie, who is utterly, hopelessly bored with life until she hears about her older brother’s wedding. Bolstered by lively conversations with her house servant, Berenice, and her six-year-old male cousin — not to mention her own unbridled imagination — Frankie takes on an overly active role in the wedding, hoping even to go, uninvited, on the honeymoon, so deep is her desire to be the member of something larger, more accepting than herself. “A marvelous study of the agony of adolescence” (Detroit Free Press), The Member of the Wedding showcases Carson McCullers at her most sensitive, astute, and lasting best.

In clear and accessible style it answers questions such as:--What does the church teach about marriage?--How is the church's court system structured and how does it work?--What's the difference between annulment and divorce?--Why can't Catholics divorce and remarry?--Do declarations of nullity make children illegitimate?--How does one get a declaration of nullity?This easy-to-understand, accessible video provides an overview of the marriage law of the church and its practical implications and makes difficult concepts understandable to the nonexpert.
