Het gebeurt allemaal in die ene idiote zomer van 1944. Frankie Addams, een tomboy van twaalf, zit in de keuken bij Berenice Sadie Brown, de zwarte kokkin, met haar neefje John Henry West van zes, die de hele ruimte ondergekliederd heeft met rare kindertekeningen. Ze beseft dat ze nergens deel van uitmaakt, niet van een club, niet van een familie. Ze hoort nergens bij.

About Carson McCullers

Carson McCullers (February 19, 1917 – September 29, 1967) was an American novelist, short-story writer, playwright, essayist, and poet. Her first novel, The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter (1940), explores the spiritual isolation of misfits and outcasts in a small town of the Southern United States. Her other novels have similar themes and most are set in the deep South.

McCullers' work is often described as Southern Gothic and indicative of her southern roots. Critics also describe her writing and eccentric characters as universal in scope. Her stories have been adapted to stage and film. A stage adaptation of her novel The Member of the Wedding (1946), which captures a young girl's feelings at her brother's wedding, made a successful Broadway run in 1950–51.
