When you think of me, think of my life -- I had embarked on something called self-invention : artistic beginnings in "Antigua crossings" and At the bottom of the river -- The way I became a writer was that my mother wrote my life for me and told it to me : living in the shadow of the mother in Annie John -- As I looked at this sentence a great wave of shame came over me and I wept and wept : the art of memory, anger, and despair in Lucy -- Imagine the bitterness and the shame in me as I tell you this : the political is personal in A small place and "On seeing England for the first time" -- I would bear children but I would never be a mother to them : writing back to the contemptuous mother in The autobiography of my mother -- I shall never forget him because his life is the one I did not have : remembering her brother's failed life in My brother -- Like him and his own father before him, I have a line drawn through me : imagining the life of the absent father in Mr. Potter
