Beschreibung:

A book a long time in the making, the stories and essays in The Forgotten Voices of Jane Dark chronicle a dark period in the writer's life starting with her first decision to confront the nightmares of her childhood through listening to the voices arising in her mind and ending with her return to her childhood home in Brooklyn after her mother's death to encounter archives bearing witness to the truth of her memories. Each story places us inside the desperate world of a child trying to make sense of abuse, and what it is doing to her, or at least to the part of her able to speak. In contrast, each essay places us inside the world of a knowledgeable adult busy placing her abuse, and the abuse of others, inside a broader cultural context, while still fighting for the integrity of her emotions and of her self. It is this commitment to the witnessing of each voice and the careful reflection on its meaning through use of the techniques of both fiction and memoir that makes this book unique.
